    I was there FWD, different to the other gigs as he didn't do Irish Blood but did Life's A Pigsty instead.

    The other songs in the set were in a different order too.

    Would love to hear it again....

    Cross fingers,

    I'd love to hear this again. Wonder if 2000 people really all said OH MY GOD at the beginning of Cemetry Gates or if that's just where we were

    We were so lucky to get the Smiths songs they played, apart from maybe The Queen Is Dead i couldn't have picked better myself.

    Thanks, but I think that's the other Famous! Kudos where it belongs.

    I've recorded several things in my time, notably the Wolv. '88, but no compilations on my part. My fave I've done and shared is Glos. Leisure Center ('86) when I was the tender age of 16....joy!

    Regards,
    FWD

    (I must say that the main recording of Glos. most people have is that of Paul's - mine was sold by Badlands in Cheltenham when they were selling Smiths/music boots/goodies out of the top of an arcade, they have since gone on to bigger and better things, but I made a few pence out of it and got an 8' wall poster for my master copy tape !!! d'oh!!! silly child that I was).

    Are you kidding? Death at One's Elbow and Is It Really So Strange are two of the most mediocre Smiths songs going. How Soon Is Now? is overdone by Morrissey in concert.

    Always loved those two.

    I Keep Mine Hidden & Never Had No-one Ever are the only 2 Smiths songs i'm not keen on, particularly the latter.

    Haha, I've already had a discussion on here about why I think Never Had No-One Ever is quintessential Morrissey...

    Musically dull and an uninspired and repetitive lyric in my humble.

    I know some people do like it though but for me it just drags The Queen Is Dead down.
