The Smiths - You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby (Rare Tracks Compilation)

Now there is nothing too new here for the die-hards, but it is a nice little collection regardless. If you are practically over-flowing with Smiths music and rarities than this may be something you already have. I have tracks that are on this disc on about 50 other bootlegs it seems. But, the feel of the album and the way the tracks flow is done quite well and it also includes a few of the Sandie Shaw rarities that aren't often heard by anyone. Some Peel & Troy Tate Sessions are here, along with some live and alternate takes. As well as the wonderful 'Work Is A Four Letter Word', which for so long was only to be found (here in the U.S.) on a Sire Records compilation. So, Smiths fans unite and press 'play'!

Thanks very much! I've just made myself sick by looking back through all your old posts and seeing all the stuff I've missed. So glad I found your blog though.
