    Um, wow... how many of these could be new, unheard demos? If all of these tracks are actually demos and not rehashes of released material, then this would be like the biggest release ever. Wow.:eek:

    It would have been nice if they had put Mr Shankly with horns on there

    Son of a bitch. No "A fool such as I" this time either. When will I ever get to hear that one?!

    Moz covering The King? An entire song at that! Forget about it. I swoon by the mere thought of it.

    Really? Hope you're wrong. Such a thing would be a sin.

    Stop it. You're killing me now. :)

    If it is the ones I am thinking about,(which I am 99% sure) these have been shared as "Smiths Unreleased Instrumental 1" and Smiths Unreleased Instrumental 2" for years. But they are not The Smiths, it is two instrumental's from the Mirval Sessions. I have a factory pressed bootleg CD and 2 bootleg records, both LP's and CD have those exact same title for both. By them saying "Raw Demos" is right. You can barley hear them and they sound like crap.
    Different lyrics, it is just fade outs, BBC sessions and the demo of THTRTC. The only thing that might be different is it might be the demo of "Shankly", "Vulgar Picture" and the instrumental of "Shoplifters". But it does not say Shoplifters is Instrumental so it is probably a BBC session or live. But those songs we all have and can be downloaded here.
    I could be wrong, I hope I am, but I wouldn't count on it and I hope a lot of people didn't get burned.

    Yeah but Simon Goddard mentioned hearing a version of There Is A Light where Moz sang "There's a light in your eyes and it never goes out" at the end. He also mentioned hearing an extended TQID, so maybe this could be them?:squiffy:

    I wonder if they are all colored vinyls no matter where your order was placed?

    Yes. At first it was said the first few bars had been accidentlly erased and it was unusable.

    Then I remember somebody saying they'd looked for it during the compilation of some reissues and couldn't find it at all.

    So, if somebody has it, and of course somebody might, then they're keeping quiet about it.

    you never really know with boots.

    the one on the right in the picture looks like it has black splatter reminiscent of the Revelations release which WAS randomly colored and not.

    We're waiting for some kind soul to post it here... if there's something really new on it.
