    While we wait for California Son, I thought I'd put together a compilation of cover versions released by Moz as a solo artist.
    Studio recordings only (with the exception of Redondo Beach, which is taken from the Janice Long radio session of course).

    Track listing:

    1. East West
    2. That's Entertainment
    3. Skin Storm
    4. Moonriver
    5. Interlude
    6. No One Can Hold A Candle To You
    7. Redondo Beach
    8. Human Being
    9. A Song From Under The Floorboards
    10. Back On The Chain Gang
    11. It's Over

    The cover I've cobbled together for my iTunes:

    Thank you.
    Kudos for the cover.
    I just got Loneliness... on blu-ray.
    Tom is incredible in it - not an easy going film, but one people should see.
    Regards,
    FWD.

    Thanks and really good idea to compile this. It's a reminder that covers have always been in Morrissey's repertoire (even in The Smiths).

    Nice concept (and lovely cover), IR. Although, just to play devil's advocate, wouldn't the true companion to California Son - especially given your most excellent title - be a compilation of British music covers? Mine would have to include:

    Losing My Mind - Pet Shop Boys
    Days - The Kinks
    What's Shakin' on the Hill - Nick Lowe
    Virginia Plain - Roxy Music
    Moments of Pleasure - Kate Bush

    Haha!
    Yes, it did cross my mind.
    The initial intention was to make it an all British affair, trouble is we do not have sufficient material.
    I wanted to use studio recordings only you see, and if I were to discard Moonriver, Interlude, Redondo Beach, Human Being, Chain Gang and It's Over we wouldn't be left with much of an album, would we? :lbf:
    Thanks for the compliments by the way.

    Your Cover is infinitely better than any of the efforts Sam E & Morrissey have mocked up recently (well, I argue it started going bad after ROTT).

    BTW What is your fave cover song (besides "It’s Over") from your compilation? My vote would probably be No One Can Hold A Candle To You with East West a close second...
