Sooooo... The Smiths. Well, I like 'em. Here's a bootleg, recorded at 28-08-1986 at Irvine Meadows, Laguna Hills, Ca. This is a very good concert and exceptionally good recording, for an unofficial one. It has some of my favourite tracks from The Queen is Dead including Cemetary Gates, The Boy and - yes! - There Is a Light, and what may or may not be a funky instrumental Cyndi Lauper cover. If you like Rank, well, I think this one just a little better (all opinions I read agree with me), but that is of course personal. Morrissey is not as savage here but the tracklist suits me fine, and occasionally the band puts some over-enthusiastic security personell back in place. Who couldn't excuse the crowd for being a bit tempestuous, I mean, it IS the Moz on that stage. If you find this review a bit understated it is because I am too enthusiastic about The Smiths to properly put into words. Rest assured this comes preposterously, obsessively, unhealthily recommended.
  1. Please, please, please let me get what I want
  2. Still ill
  3. I want the one I can't have
  4. There is a light that never goes out
  5. How soon is now?
  6. Frankly, mr. Shankly
  7. Panic
  8. Stretch out and wait
  9. The boy with the thorn in his side
  10. Is is really so strange?
  11. Cemetary gates
  12. Never had no one ever
  13. What she said/Rubber ring
  14. That joke isn't funny anymore
  15. Heaven knows I'm miserable now
  16. The queen is dead
  17. Money changes everything
  18. I know it's over
Load it down


  1. and to think I couldn't love you more!
    Thank you sooo much, I've never heard of this album before.

  2. There is a chance that you have... there was some comfusion about the name, and according to some sources this one is called Life Is Very Long When You're Lonely.

    It's my pleasure to hear that I could do something back to the über-Smiths-fan who patiently conditioned me over the last one and a half years to finally fall in love with that charming man and his voice, his words, his band and his hair.
