Record shop blurb:

"The nine-song session was tracked in May 1983 at manager Joe Moss' Crazy Face warehouse, before the band hit the studio to record their self-titled debut. While songs like "Reel Around the Fountain" and "Hand in Glove" play fairly similar to their more famous counterparts, there is a rough and tumble quality that warrants a listen, from Morrissey's playful yelps and growls to the hilariously mismatched, almost surf-style drum roll that leads into "These Things Take Time.""

Right a year or so ago I ripped this originally via a lossy minidisc lineage.
Well here better late than never is a true lossless version.
It does sound better than via minidisc, so for those that want it here it is.
The only processing that has been done to this is click & crackle removal, other than that it is untreated.
