The Smiths - Unreleased BBC Sessions in high quality


I believe these are all the unreleased BBC radio recordings. All except for "Wonderful Woman" and "I Don't Owe You Anything" come from very good sources, not previously shared.

Thank you!

A high-quality BBC sessions compilation is well overdue. Years ago I spent a long time diligently collecting the best of each version only to find that there's no good versions of Wonderful Woman (Jensen) out there. I nagged the BBC to re-broadcast it but evidently, my powers of persuasion are ineffective at the Big British Castle.
A friendly hello and a kind thanks!

Sorry for the probably obvious uestion, but does Hatful of Hollow + this upload = all the BBC Session stuff in as high quality available?

DavidA's research on the matter a while back (which some sites based their views of 'best' on). May be in need of an update, but this started on ST years ago and has shaped thinking since.:
