I much preferred 'Bernad Manning sings The Smiths'
I have a couple of vinyl copies that Bernard signed for me. I found all my Smiths/Moz collection the other week clearing the attic I've got a few boxes full of ultra rare stuff some of it signed, I was gonna flog it all but might wait till he's in his box as that will push up the value.

Thanks, FWD, for the link. Love the cover. I've always liked that picture of Wilde. I'm listening to Well, I Wonder at the moment as Skinny said it was a good cover, and it's taking me back to the age of 17 when I had black hair, wore long velvet dresses and combat boots. Might have liked it then, but it doesn't do much for me now.

Haven't listened to the rest of it yet. Hopefully it gets better.

(I see there are two versions of WIW, sorry. I was listening to the Clowder version. The Excusers version is nice...)

I'm now convinced I need an ear transplant after listening to that.

as marred, I ask myself, how many tribute albums are there, and will come,
we had 6 weeks ago, 'Tease Torment and Tantalise

Loks like new bands like to part to tribute to a influenial band to get more PR, and listeners
haven't heard any of the songs, but I'm bit done with tribute albums this mourning :(

'and they say he's mentall'...mayybe time to do a Morrissey tribute album...
 

Mr Delaney

I've left.
How many of these damn tribute albums are there?

Quite a lot, I'm afraid. Shows that the church of Moz is a broad one - but also that no-one can hold a candle to him as a vocalist.

Mixed bag this, as with most "fan" tribute albums. (And "professional artists" ones such like Smiths Is Dead, come to think of it.)

Liked one or two songs on this, as with that recent French one. The first HSIN is at least off the beaten path :)

I agree there's an inordinate amount, but there have been some gems in amongst the glut.
I have enjoyed the classical music takes on The Smiths and even some of the way out ambient stuff. I understand why bands do it and I can't blame them for doing so. If a couple at a time out of say 20 entertain me, then I'm happy.
Regards,
FWD
