amendment pack 7.6.18
34 All The Young People Must Fall In Love (Bob Clearmountain Mix)
35 Rose Garden (Live At The Grand Ole Opry, Nashville)
amendment pack 9.11.18

36 Blue Dreamers Eyes
37 Back On The Chain Gang (Video Version)
38 Back On The Chain Gang (Irregular Regular Edit) - no reggae intro

Also, we need the official "I Didn't Know What To Do" vinyl b-side mp3 to add if you can help, @Famous when dead.

I'd also imagine we have more tracks to add to the "Nothing Ever Dies" folder given recent Smiths songs at live shows?

Ok, looks like we need to add:

William, It Was Really Nothing and Is It Really So Strange? to Nothing Ever Dies (or updated versions of recent live performances), and,

- Hairdresser On Fire (last played 2004)
- Sunny (last played 1999)
- Dial-A-Cliché (live debut)
and
- Break Up The Family (last played 2000)

Am I missing anything?

Hold on to your friends? Last time it got played!. Smith's songs are correct but years could be updated not sure how that's being filed(1st time played,or latest time) I say that because he seems to be changing the songs a little since he last sang the same Smith songs listed on NOTHING EVER DIES

I guess I should stop updating the original LIHS volume and start using/adding on to this one, going forward?

I thought it would be better to have the Irregular Regular edit (omitting the reggae intro) of Back On The Chain Gang on there instead of the studio version, since the latter is an official, recent, buyable release.

I'll replace all the updated files you uploaded here (thank you!) with the original .rar Mr Jackpots provided:

All the old links from early eras are dead. Can someone reup?
I can re-up all of the above shortly, once I update to add the following into their respective folders:

- Hairdresser On Fire (last played 2004)
- Sunny (last played 1999)
- Dial-A-Cliché (live debut)
- Break Up The Family (last played 2000)
- Hold On To Your Friends (last played 1997)

And "William..." and "Is It Really..." into Nothing Ever Dies.

We’re also waiting on the Chain Gang b-side of “I Didn’t Know What To Do” to be made available.

@Famous when dead - what do you think we should do with the live versions? Make amendment packs for the respective era/album they are from? @dirtee rephlex kindly added "Break Up The Family" from the recent mini-set session to the LIHS era folder he re-created, so that doesn't really need to be added to the Viva Hate era folder, I don't think.

And could you please provide mp3s of the best versions available?

Well, the biggest issue with this collection was always longevity of the links.
Here (hopefully) is a static link to all the songs in uncompressed form in their allotted folders - so you can download any or all of the particular tracks you are trying to find.
I will add the other collections (NHS 2012/14 which has some other bits and also Cuckoo, Nothing Ever etc...) when I get round to it as uploading 4+ gigs takes time.

There is no intention of stepping on toes here - simply a URL that will stop people asking for the same things over and over.
Once the initial issues of tearing the arse out of the bandwidth is over, it should serve as a place to direct people to instead of constant re-ups.


Folders 1-16 of the NHS 2018 collection:

https://mega.nz/#F!dh8zXYRT!l67PYqkQXMQDKRcn0d0HyQ

Tracks available individually or as folder zips.


As for moving forward - I don't want to get in to the too many cooks scenario.
I'm happy to add to the static folders with anything people feel is appropriate and hopefully is formatted to just be slotted in to the existing folders to save hassle.
There is nothing worse than sifting through a mess of files trying to make sense of things!
If Mr. J is no longer interested in any aspect of this, then obviously coming to a consensus would be good moving forward.
Similarly, if DR is going to go through all the existing collections and update, then I'm happy to update them as they become available, but that type of thing needs agreeing upon.
The above link is just a start to help those without.

I will try and track down some of the bits and bobs mentioned above to then add after discussion. If there could be some idea about whether the whole thing is being re-done or if we are adding DR's stuff to the existing etc...
Please let me know the link works and links to the 16 aforementioned folders.

For fear of boring people:
None of this would be possible without the efforts of many, many kind people in sharing/encoding/collating/recording et al - that is a fact that is never lost on me.
To all concerned - THANK YOU.
Regards,
FWD.

Once the initial issues of tearing the arse out of the bandwidth is over,
Before I say anything, I must quote this part, because picturing you saying it in a posh accent combined with your avatar made me laugh. You're such a treat to have around here. Next Moz LP title after California Son: "They Are Tearing The Arse Out Of Me"? @davidt, do please consider FWD as a moderator.

With regards to the rest, the mega link you supplied is working great on my end - thank you! The only change I'd make is entirely replace the files of the original LIHS era with the one provided above by dirtee rephlex, as it has everything ordered a bit better - including the right order of the LIHS instrumental tracks. I'd also remove the album version of Back On The Chain Gang (because it can be bought and it just came out) but replace it with Irregular Regular's edit that omits the reggae intro.

I think, personally, it would be fine to keep them as-is as Mr Jackpots originally created them, as it is all quite comprehensive. Amendments to previous eras would only be minimal as new tracks are leaked/surfaced over time that we don't currently have (looking at you, There Speaks A True Friend (Alternate Mix)).

Remaining bits-and-bobs to add:

Recent live performances:

- Hairdresser On Fire (last played 2004)
- Sunny (last played 1999)
- Dial-A-Cliché (live debut)
- Break Up The Family (last played 2000) - probably doesn't need to be added since it's now in the LIHS folder, although a different live recording could certainly be added to the Viva Hate era folder
- Hold On To Your Friends (last played 1997; most recently in 2017)

Recent Smiths live cover performances to Nothing Ever Dies:

- William, It Was Really Nothing (last played Feb 03, 2007)
- Is It Really So Strange? (last played Dec 11, 2009)

And finally waiting on a kind soul to rip the vinyl b-side "I Didn't Know What To Do" from the Chain Gang single to add.

I think that covers all ground for now.

Incidentally, have all of these YATQ-era tracks mentioned in this old thread surfaced over the years? -

https://www.morrissey-solo.com/threads/i-will-post-unreleased-versions-of-yatq-tracks.62635/
If we accept that the Cherokee sessions are the ones referred to in the old thread - then no, not all.
Krix or Stephane don't mention them in any other way except 2002 demos in Cherokee Studio.
My understanding:

Irish Blood, English Heart
Let Me Kiss You
My Life Is A Succession of People Saying Goodbye

Teenage Dad On His Estate
Don't Make Fun Of Daddy's Voice

The last 2 being on the yet to be circulated discs.
If this isn't the case, then the assertion is there's 5 demos not out there yet.
Given the demos released match the description of tracks on the circulated disc:
I think it is just 2 remaining in the wild.
Regards,
FWD.

Thank you for being so thorough, sir!

I’m hoping that all of this discussion will encourage someone – anyone – to dig this out of their storage locker and share all the remaining tracks from it that haven’t yet been shared.

- Is It Really So Strange? (last played Dec 11, 2009)
Of these 7 songs that have been played at recent shows, can anyone please suggest the best version/quality of each one to include? "Hold On To Your Friends" can be from 2017 or 2018 as we let that one sit idle for a while before getting back on track with updating this beast.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
