    I seem to recall a conversation with perhaps Jeff Pelletier 1,000,000 years ago that the "Headmasters" lp was the hardest one for him to find. It previously was my understanding that "A Nice Bit Of Meat 2" was the most difficult.

    But bootlegs aren't from The Smiths. They don't count to me.
    I'm only interested in official items

    Beau,
    Your right it seems like a 1,000,000 years ago that we talked about Smiths bootleg lps !
    "Headmasters" lp was the hardest for me to find then A Nice Bit of Meat 2 and 3.

    The factory press for TYLS always goes for high prices. It sounds good, it is a good show, and Moz really yells at the bouncers and says"Don't Be So Stupid" during "I Know It's Over" really good show. The electric ballroom LP was the vinyl I was think about.
