    Description:

    The original Decibelle recording. Brings back so many memories. Thanks to Philipe Delcloque, one of the many unsung heroes of the late 70's, early 80's Manchester music scene.

      Right from the jump, Moz's lyrics were the whole foundation of The Smiths.
      When ya can serve up words that well, the rest is gonna work itself out.

      Moz was still workin' his singin' out and Johnny was still workin' his janglin' out.
      Who ya ever heard came straight out with lyrics that good though?
      Not even Bob Dylan did. Maybe Nas did.

      Wow, and then to hear the individual tracks as well. What a revelation.

      What a beautiful way to kick off a new year, thank you so much.
      Morrissey sounds like the late Leonard Cohen on this one: no real singing voice, just a man reading out his poetry. The music sounds a bit monotonous, though I really like the outro. But I would also say that Johnny progressed very quickly, if you consider that songs like Hand In Glove, Handsome Devil, This Charming Man soo followed.

      You're absolutely correct. Particularly easy to hear on the hofner and gretsch isolated track. I stand, as a huge Andy fan, corrected.

      I see Johnny hasn’t come very far vocally.

      Yeah, it quickly became one my favorites on the Smiths debut. I enjoy hearing demos and early versions to appreciate how songs evolved into what became the recorded version.

      Penmanship? What are you...slow? Writing sample as in the man CANNOT WRITE A DECENT LYRIC ANYMORE, when once he could write beautifully. Get it, you cantankerous clunk? The point is that we are all wondering how anyone can go from great lyricist to one of the worst out there today? Conspiracy theorists may wonder if Morrissey actually wrote the lyrics on those Smiths records or if he got some help...have you read his rancid novel? He is so not a writer anymore.
