Those live tracks were pretty amazing - presumably there are entire concerts of this quality sat in the archives somewhere?

It's mentioned in The Severed Alliance (see its index) - at the final recording sessions at Streatham - just a sketch of a song really.

Re: Jack The Ripper (Allen Toussaint version).

Don't think it ever got off the starting blocks.
It's in the possibly/maybe close to happening pile, but certainly not a missing, tangible rarity.

See:
"Nigel quickly arranges for a studio session in New Orleans with the revered Allen Toussaint. Worn out, the band arrives at the studio where Allen will record the song The thoughts of Jack the Ripper, a ludicrously lost gem in Nigel’s view, yet not the catchiest of titles. I slip into the studio and watch the band warm up. I say hello to Allen, who looks at me and then looks away. The band are rough to the point of bad – having been pushed around America like a debilitated Bay City Rollers, and Allen Toussaint looks concerned. I am now embarrassed by the sound coming through the speakers, of which Allen says to his engineer ‘What have I let myself in for?’ I overhear the comment and I catch the engineer’s reply to Allen, which is a silent sssh in my direction, as if to say to Allen, ‘Steady, he can hear you.’ Without fuss or calamity I rise and exit into the balmy air of New Orleans. Boz follows me.
‘So, what do you want me to do?’ he says.
‘El-vest has left the building,’ I say, not remotely funny. It isn’t a question of vanity or ego, but occasionally there is simply no point."

My list is several years old, if you want you could update with fresh infos, or use as a base for a wiki article. It would be nice to have some infos available for future memory.

p.s. Thank you for your everlasting kindness in share material and answer at all questions. And for tolerate my not-so-good English (I'm Italian).

Most of my infos are taken from Simon Goddard's "Songs That Saved Your Life" % Johnny Rogan's "The Severed Alliance" books, various interviews and from PassionsJustLikeMine site, as well as from the credits of the various Smiths' albums and singles.

An interesting anecdote from Moz, which leaves me wondering (again) why he chose and persisted with such poor musicians, even though they did improve. A man of his status, choosing a band that actually embarrassed him - it's bizarre.

Who are the poor musicians he's persisted with? I gather you're referring specifically in this instance to Alain/Boz/Gary/Spencer? Perhaps he saw their potential even if they were rough around the edges, and giving them a chance worked out pretty well for him didn't it? Because, as you say, they improved. I mean, by 1992 they were an excellent band, in my book.

Never have heard about that song You Don't Know Anything?
Did Moz go ahead and throw vocals on it or is it just another
one of them instrumental things?
