Information

What follows is a compendium of known Morrissey and Smiths concert bootlegs. This list is by no means complete, and additional entries are not only encouraged but needed.

In addition to venue and date of performance, full tracklists will be provided. Moments of note are also listed as well; for example, if a particular concert contains a one-time only performance of a song (i.e., Come Back To Camden at the London Palladium in August of 2011), or if the concert was of particular historical significance in Morrissey's career (i.e. the 1992 Madstock concert or the 2004 MEN birthday show.) Where available, known CD art will be provided as well.

Additionally, a subjective letter-grade regarding sound quality will be offered.

Letter grades are as follows:

A: Excellent
B: Very Good
C: Good
D: Poor/listenable
F: Very poor/for completists only
