Hi all!
I am planning to create a custom Smiths collection. This collection will contain 4CD's of which the first three will be studio recordings, and the third will be with live performances . The three cd's will be organized as follows:
- CD 1: The most popular cheerful, fast paced Smiths songs like Bigmouth Strikes Again, This Charming man, Panic, The boy with the thorn in his side etc.
- CD 2: The darkest, saddest, most depressive, love songs like: I Know its over, Never had no one ever, This night has opened my eyes etc.
- CD 3: The least known Smiths songs (least known is kinda subjective) like: The Draize train, Wonderful Woman, etc.
- CD 4: Live performances: (probably complete Rank album)
I'm not sure about this kind of organization and id appreciate any advice.

I haven't checked to see if you have all songs but you can check yourself by looking at PJLM.
There's several different versions of each song, plus in a few cases there are studio versions which have leaked but never been officially released.
As for live, I guess Rank and Oxford are easy pickings because the BBC recorded them in high fidelity. Look for the DSAT versions here in this forum because they have tracks that weren't officially released. Other than that, look at Thank Your Lucky Stars.

No there aren't studio versions of Whats The World and What Do You See In Him.
As for a live CD I'd definitely recommend the Feb 83 Hacienda gig which has What Do You See In Him, i love it.
You could probably squeeze on one of the extended live versions of Barbarism Begins At Home from the 1985 US tour (around 13 mins) and the first ever live performance of This Charming Man from this gig
That is the only live recording of the original TCM which is as the Peel Session version on Hatful rather than the stop/start regular version.
I'd probably have the recording of How Soon Is Now from the first time it was played
and the DSAT Kilburn National version that didn't make it onto Rank.
Of out-takes the "Italian Mix" of How Soon Is Now is a personal favourite.
