Release Notes

Notes from DavidA at smithstorrents.co.uk
This is about as good as it gets. Since 1985 a relatively low quality version
of this Pro-Shot gig existed, but kigonjiro from DimeADozen captured it again
digitally when it was re-broadcast in August 2006.
Not only has this been captured without re-encoding, but great effort has
been made adding the interview and other features into a professional-looking
DVD front end menu.
I take zero credit for this excellent bootleg, but kigonjiro gave me
permission to re-seed it, so here it is. I have added this info file plus
the screencaps which were posted.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Notes from PassionsJustLikeMine.com
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As in Barcelona, the Smiths played a 18 track setlist including the almost
forgotten "This Charming Man" and the occasionally skipped "Barbarism Begins
At Home", but not the lesser known "Stretch Out And Wait".
The gig turned out well, the Spanish were very energetic. Morrissey was also
very energetic, he danced wildly but wasn't very talkative. He introduced
the current single, "Shakespeare's Sister", with "This is our new single,
it's called 'Shakespeare's Sister'." Similarly, "Hand In Glove" was introduced
with "This song is called 'Hand In Glove'." In "Still Ill", Morrissey fell to
the floor and writhed like a dying animal. The only memorable quote preceded
"Meat Is Murder": "We have seen your national sport... and it's not very
kind...". Besides that his banter consisted of hello's and thank you's, like
"Thank you, you're very kind... thank you" after "Handsome Devil" and "Heaven
Knows I'm Miserable Now".
Coming back for the third encore, Morrissey stretched it slightly by saying
"Thank you, we're very happy, thank you." During the ending of "Barbarism
Begins At Home", as he danced, Morrissey slowly removed his shirt, swung it
around, and threw it into the audience. After "You've Got Everything Now"
Morrissey simply said "Goodbye! We love you... thank you... goodbye... thank
you..." and the band left stage a final time.
This show was recorded and broadcast on Spanish television programme Edad De
Oro. Recordings of varying quality are available on bootleg VHS and DVDs.
AVI files are also circulated on file sharing networks.
As for audio, the show was released on a few 'official' bootlegs. The only
interesting one has to be "Unruly Boys" which includes the whole show in good
sound quality, most likely from the television broadcast. The widely
distributed "Live In Madrid" (available on brown vinyl LP and cd) also has
the full concert, but the sound is not as good. The recording appears
slightly accelerated. The LP bootleg "Spanish Sun Live In Madrid" includes
these 10 tracks: "How Soon Is Now?", "Handsome Devil", "That Joke Isn't Funny
Anymore", "Shakespeare's Sister", "Rusholme Ruffians", "Hand In Glove", "Meat
Is Murder", "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now", "Miserable Lie" and "Barbarism
Begins At Home". The quality is very good.
The 2-LP version of "Never Had No One Ever" includes "Handsome Devil", "That
Joke Isn't Funny Anymore", "Shakespeare's Sister", "Rusholme Ruffians",
"Meat Is Murder", "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now", "This Charming Man" and
"You've Got Everything Now" while its cd counterpart only includes "Handsome
Devil". As on "Live In Madrid", the speed is too fast. For both formats the
main featured concert is the Smiths' final gig on 12 December 1986.
"Wilde About The Smiths", a factory pressed cd in digipack has "Meat Is
Murder" from this concert with many other live tracks, rarities and radio and
tv sessions.
MP3s of both "Unruly Boys" and "Live In Madrid" can be found on file sharing
networks.

For those that have downloaded this already via DimeADozen, could you download this torrent and point it at your existing directory? Your existing version will be untouched, it will add the info and screencaps, but most importantly you'll help me seed a 3.6 gig torrent!

I made a cover for this show, but for some reason when I upload it to my Yahoo Photo page it comes up as a broken link, I have tried several times with the same results. So if you are interested in the cover I made just shoot me an email at spaceape91 (at) yahoo.com and I will email it to you.

Dime is constantly purging inactive members automatically. You have to try and register every few minutes. You should get through after a few attempts. You could also try late at night as there will be fewer people trying to get through.
