    You have to download it all in order to return people's kindness properly.
    When I'm in that position, much like many, many times on ST/Dime - I will seed continually for others.
    I don't think enough people have the space/decent internet to have it in full yet and some are leeching little bits rather than the whole thing.
    Regards,
    FWD.

    I gave the archive to a data hoarder who told me he's seeding across several 1Gbit peers, so hopefully it will have a good uptime and speed.

    Right, all done.
    That took about 3 and a half days of downloading and purchasing a SSHD. Maximum I pulled down (with excellent internet) was at about 2.9 mbps at any given time.
    I will, from tonight, be joining in seeding.
    If there's no objections, some of the good gigs in FLAC will get the MP3 320 treatment for sharing here - so that people who don't do huge amounts of data can still enjoy them.
    Again, to all involved with contributing, hosting, sharing, compiling et al: thank you.
    Regards,
    FWD.

    No objection from me. Also, thank you for seeding.

    In Stephane's Live History section he describes the best audio and video recordings for each tour. It would be nice to find the best available recording of each one he mentions. I started to do that last week but then ran out of evening.

    I love this gig !!
    "1985-09-25 - Barrowlands, Glasgow [FLAC, Soundsville Steve, CC Remaster]"
    Great atmosphere, the audience sings with Morrissey at the beginning of a certain songs (That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore, Still Ill, William, It Was Really Nothing) , Morrissey speaks or jokes between songs and the quality of the recording is very good
    Thanks again !!!!
    Regards,
    Pierre

    Here's a video from that gig. A more complete version can be found on

    MISC - Soundsville Compilation 1985-1987 [DVD, Misc, Soundsville]\VIDEO_TS\VTS_02_2.VOB around the 19 minute mark.

    Seems like it had a lot of energy. It's also where What's The World was recorded, I think.

    @DavidA
    I just checked and you are right, in the official compilation "The Sound of the Smiths: Deluxe Edition",
    there is “What's The World? (Live in Glasgow 1985)”
    So may be the full official recording exist and one day a official Remastered ?? (the sound of “What's The World?" on the official compilation is still a little better)
    Thank you for the information on the videos, I will watch !!
    Best Regards,
    Pierre

    Thanks, I found my happiness on "https://mozutd.tumblr.com/" and sometimes versions are (for sound quality) better, ex: "The Venue, London, 15th September 1983"
    Best Regerds,
    Pierre

    I recommended this site as it lists sources.
    If the source is Smiths Torrents, then it's available as a FLAC in the huge archive.
    If it's not, then it's still available from Salford Music Club - so win win.
    Also, a link I've shared many times and would say needs digging through:
    6+ gig of Smiths gigs in MP3:
    https://mega.nz/#F!pIZgBAZT!CjA3briy9DX2nuy_GiSgtA

    Enjoy,
