from the Craig Gannon wikipedia page..
Gannon composed the music used on the 'Inside The Smiths' DVD, released by former Smiths Mike Joyce and Andy Rourke. In addition to this, he is also scheduled to compose the music for a classic albums DVD of 'The Queen Is Dead' - slated for release sometime in 2008.

Strange thing with The Queen Is Dead is it's reckoned to be THE classic Smiths album by most but i actually rate it below The Smiths, Hatful Of Hollow, and Strangeways Here We Come.
It edges Meat Is Murder though.
For me The Queen Is Dead is let down by the production, it just sounds so flat compared to how they were performed live - exception being There Is A Light That Never Goes Out.

1- I strongly recommend that DVD. I enjoyed watching it the same way I enjoyed reading Simon Goddard's "The Songs That Saved Your Life".
2- For me the Smiths' classic album is Meat Is Murder. Perfection.

I totally agree Stephane... and it's strange that so many fans disagree! To me MIM is a more cohesive statement, and their strongest guitar record overall.
And when I say MIM, I mean without how soon is now, obviously. Weird that they stuck it on there.

Just bought this DVD.. It's excellent. Album preferences aside, this DVD gives some new interesting details about the album and life around The Smiths in general.
Problem is it's available for about £4.00 on Amazon, I paid £13.00 at HMV ('cos I'm impatient :) )
Cool!

That started with the US releases i think.
IIRC they didn't get Hatful Of Hollow out there originally (got Louder Than Bombs instead of HOH and World Won't Listen i believe) and as HSIN was such a big alternative-rock track over there they stuck it on Meat Is Murder.
Of course this all changed when Rough Trade brought out Louder Than Bombs here in the UK later on and the WEA reissue of Meat Is Murder had HSIN on it.

I actually thought How Soon Is Now? fit.
Maybe because I listened to the American release before Hatful of Hollow.
