The Smiths - Before.... The Original Troy Tate Sessions
In 1983 as the Smiths were nearly done recording their landmark first album they suddenly had a change of heart. Or, at least, Morrissey did - and sacked the producer Troy Tate and said his album mix just wasn't up to snuff. He seemed to be the only one who felt that way, but when Morrissey speaks many fall in line and Troy was gone. In comes John Porter to re-record the songs and provide the crystal-clear well polished sound we enjoy from the first record. Opinions may very but alternate versions of any Smiths songs are always collectible, aren't they? This is in 2 parts for you fine people and comments from you are always welcomed.
