The Smiths -Peel Sessions '83 - '86 LP. These 15 songs see a very young Smiths fusing their poetic jangle with fierce doses of an energy that's just a baby step away from punk. Morrissey screeches, wails, and howls like a wounded chicken, while Johnny Marr's guitars ring with a desperate Joy Division blaze. Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce hold up their end of the bargain as well, providing a rhythmic attack that is astonishingly crisp and immediate. Overall a nice slice in the Smiths history with many of these songs being played for the first time that would later end up on 1984’s ‘Hatful of Hollow’.
