The Smiths- Demos & Outtakes 1 LP. Let’s face it, when it comes to gloomy, heartfelt pop songs there are very few bands that did it better than the Smiths. They just had a knack for writing great songs and Morrisey’s vocals were beyond passionate that it worked so well. Smiths fans can rejoice with this new Demos and Outakes LP of long lost Smiths recordings. The demos are very similar, but have some subtle differences that the true Smiths fans will appreciate. On the instrumentals, you can hear Johnny Marr working through guitar arrangements in his creative prime. It's nice for all Smiths fans to experience previously unheard versions of "Frankly Mr Shankly," "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle," and "Rusholme Ruffians." along with alternate takes on a few other Smiths gems. There’s also an unrleased Studio Recording of “This Night Has Opened My Eyes” that is absolutely essential.
