Morrissey - Live in Wolverhampton 1988

Morrissey's coming out party (as it were) for his post-Smiths solo career. Fevered fans lined up outside the venue for days and it was quite a collection of haircuts, I tell you. His decision to make the price of admission be the wearing of a Smiths t-shirt was quite clever, if not a bit self-serving. I remember seeing bits of this show on the 'Hulmerist' video and wishing I had been there but, alas, us Americans would have to ait a little longer for his tour to wind it's way to us. I agree with Johnny Rogan (author 'Morrissey&Marr: The Severed Alliance') that to have his backing band be essentially The Smiths minus Johnny Marr and all of them at the time suing him in court was something only Morrissey could have pulled off and he did it with panache. This concert here is another little gift for the very vocal Morrissey fan majority I get here at this blog. If you others spoke up a bit more I would post some of your requests as well. Just be polite and wait in line and you may be served.
