The Smiths
"The Longuest Day"
Universal Amphitheater, Studio City, Los Angeles, CA
26 August 1986
Source: unknown
Torrent created on 9 August 2007 (THIS IS THE CORRECTED VERSION)

Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is two different incomplete audience recordings of the same date merged together to form the complete concert. The job was done by someone in France (Vince Dome) a few years ago. Neither original were ever made available here as far as I know. Unfortunately in the 'remastering' process a bit of the sound quality was lost.
I'm guessing (and hoping) that there is no MP3s in the lineage because I got my copy straight from the remasterer.
I've seen this requested twice lately so I thought I would put it up here.
I am aware that it should be titled "The Longest Day", but I'm using the title as it was given by the remasterer.

For the third night in a row, the Smiths made a few changes to the set. This time "Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want" and "Reel Around The Fountain" were the returning songs. The former was played for the first time since the very first dates of this tour while the latter was played for the first time since the summer of 1985. It would never be played again later, making this performance an oddity. These songs took the place of the recently reintroduced "Rusholme Ruffians".
The Los Angeles shows were the wildest ones of the North American tour of 1986, with a good deal of stage climbing. Morrissey about the LA concerts, in retrospect: "The first night in LA, they brought in the police. The second night they had to bring in the army. People were so responsive - I had to be dragged off the stage several times. It was really insane."
Morrissey wasn't very talkative until "Panic" which he introduced as new, and followed with "Thank you... we're enjoying you immensely...". He then introduced the following number, "Stretch Out And Wait". Before "Is It Really So Strange?" in which a line was changed to "Oh yes you can ban me, and you can butt me", Morrissey asked "Any requests?". After the song he answered to someone in the audience "Obviously it is... what?... 'Still Ill'?" Shortly after that, "Never Had No One Ever" was introduced with "This is another song from our latest LP which you no doubt hear constantly on the radio." After "Meat Is Murder", requests were shouted from the audience and Morrissey answered to someone "What? Which one? 'Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now'? Okay...". He seemed to accept the request but in fact the song just happened to be the next one planned. After that he told the crowd "Don't feel too restricted".
Returning to the stage for the first encore after the instrumental "Money Changes Everything", Morrissey said "We would like to say thank you to all the people who came to both nights... yes this was obviously every one of you... thank you!" The band seemed genuinely satisfied with the great reception they got, and this is probably why the final song "Bigmouth Strikes Again" was significantly extended with bits of improvisation by Morrissey and the rest of the Smiths.
BOOTLEGS
The infamous "Thank Your Lucky Stars" bootleg is credited as being from this date, but it is actually from the following gig in Irvine.
An average-to-good audience recording of this concert can be found in very limited circulation. The transfer to MP3 files on the internet lacks the extended improvised ending to "Bigmouth Strikes Again" and perhaps other minor bits. A bootleg double cd set titled "The Longuest Day" was produced from incomplete sets to recreate the full concert as it was recorded. However some of the sound quality was lost in the process.
"Shoplifters From Manchester", a manufactured bootleg cd, features "Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want", "Never Had No One Ever", "The Queen Is Dead" and "Money Changes Everything" along with Troy Tate sessions, radio and tv sessions as well as live material from 4 February 1983, 7 December 1983, 12 March 1984, 21 April 1984 and 4 May 1984.
"Boyfriend In A Coma", a LP reissue of "Shoplifters From Manchester" with fewer tracks, features "Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want" along with Troy Tate sessions, radio and tv sessions as well as live material from 4 February 1983, 7 December 1983, 12 March 1984, 21 April 1984 and 4 May 1984.

Oh, and you might want to delete your original download before getting this one. I don't know if it's going to confuse the tracker.
Sorry for the extra trouble, and thanks to fki for bringing this to my attention.
