I don't know much about doing videos, so apologies in advance if I have produced something that doesn't meet QS. This is the digisat broadcast of the show with the audiotrack removed and replaced with my improved version, as seeded here as FLAC files some time ago. I used a program called mkvmerge, which advertises itself as being able to replace audio without re-encoding.
The audio is generally better, with EQ, various fixes and the little silences that are all over the commonly available version magicked away. Nothing has been done with the video track.
About the concert
18th May 1985 on the Paseo de Camoens, a boulevard in Madrid. It was a free concert, paid for by the city, with The Smiths supported by a Spanish band called Furnish Time. It was broadcast on Spanish TV and was by far the biggest gig The Smiths ever played. In the talky bits from the TV broadcast, the figure of 300,000 is mentioned a number of times - make of that what you will. You would think it might have been something that would have been trumpeted in the UK but, in typical Smiths style, they managed to sack the person who did their PR (the late, lamented Scott Piering) at precisely the same time.
