First virtual Best Of on iTunes / new "The Youngest..." download only release
posted by davidt on Thursday July 13 2006, @04:30PM

Stefan Krix writes:
iTunes Germany is offering the 5th live version of the current single The Youngest Was The Most Loved as a download. This version is different to the previously published four versions of the same track from Gateshead (30.04.), Grimsby (04.05.), Manchester Apollo (06.05.) and Manchester Opera (07.05.); it comes from the concert in Sheffield (03.05.).

In addition, they are offering a bundle of tracks which - as far as I know - is the first online only Best Of of Morrissey called iTunes Essentials: Morrissey . It contains the following 20 tracks:

Irish Blood, English Heart
You Have Killed Me
The First Of The Gang To Die
The Ordinary Boys
Disappointed
Dear God, Please Help Me
Let Me Kiss You
Margaret On The Guillotine
I Have Forgiven Jesus
America Is Not The World
Life Is A Pigsty
Dial-A-Cliché
Sing Your Life
Our Frank
(I'm) The End Of The Family Line
At Last I Am Born
Break Up The Family
In The Future When All's Well
I've Changed My Plea Tu Guilty
I Like You (Live Sessions@AOL)

I don't know how this collection was compiled (maybe number of downloads?), but this is worth a discussion for sure. In addition, is a virtual compilation an official release, despite a 'release date' 27.06.2006?

1984 Reel Around Kew Gardens - The Smiths on "Charlie's Bus"

An unbelievable clip courtesy of The Scotsman... The Smiths on a kids TV programme from 1984.

Lazy Guide to Net Culture: Stranger ways here we come… - The Scotsman

Excerpt:

This is why we have the internet.

Forget "the semantic web". Forget "2.0". Forget "community." It's all irrelevant. The entire project has been building to this one moment: a unique event that shows us the true purpose of this wonderful interconnected archive.

Here it is: a clip of The Smiths appearing on children's telly (TV-AM's S.P.L.A.T.!) in April 1984. On Charlie's Bus. Going to on a trip with a bunch of kids. To the tune of Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now. To meet Sandie Shaw. Who then sings what is arguably The Smiths' most depressing song, Jeane.

There's a clip here from a weird '80s children's programme called Charlie's Bus. It features Moz and Marr presenting, as the kids take a trip to Kew Gardens, where, by some coincidence, they bump into Sandie Shaw, who sings Jeane. I kid you not!!!

Here's the URL:

Great version of Jeane, by the way.

BlueGirl writes:
The British trio Clayhill have been covering the Smiths' 'Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want' on their current stint on the North American Beth Orton tour. Furthermore, their cover version of this classic is featured on the August 2006 Q Magazine free CD. It's well worth checking out.

Clayhill features Gavin Clark on vocals and former Beth Orton bandmates Ted Barnes and Ali Friend. The band's next stop is Webster Hall in New York City on Wednesday. Full tour details and song samples here: http://myspace.com/clayhill
