Very nice recording ! Great Upload Steve !
Thank you very much.
Nevertheless, i think it's very very , very fast. Is it me ?
I think it should be corrected with about 106.5% speed correction.
Please, let me know your opinion about that.

To concluded a 106.5%, i have compared with recent good copies of Boston 14/06/85 and Los Angeles 28/06/85.
But, slower tracks seems to have the good speed ?

While I may agree with your suggestion that this recording plays back too fast, slowing it down to 106.5% (in Adobe Audition, I presume) is definitely off the mark. You have to allow for the adrenalin that was clearly pumping through the band's veins at this show, which judging from this very fine recording is easily one of the most exciting I have ever heard by the band. I wouldn't go past 103.6 %.
Also, I don't have the impression that Morrissey left the stage after Stretch Out And Wait: he can clearly be heard singing the opening words of Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now, then he seems to hand the microphone for a brief moment to a fan who has made it to the stage before continuing to sing himself.
I think the remark about being violent is addressed to one of the security men, possibly because he tried to keep said fan from climbing onto the stage. Around the one minute mark in Heaven Knows... there seems to be another bit of trouble between fans and security.
Anyway, many many thanks again, Steve, for this recording. Anyone could have been forgiven for thinking that you might be starting to scrape the barrel by now, but this is clearly not the case. I love this rendition of Barbarism Begins at Home: great singing from Morrissey, cool effects on his vocals, a band that is giving it its all and a clear recording to boot!

I think you're right it is fast. I compared it to the New Orleans show from the previous week, using the intro music (which I assume will be at the same speed every night), and using my DJ decks, speeding up this one by just over 2% seem to get them to play in sync.
Didn't really notice it when I was transferring it from DAT, as it was such a great show, and a nice crisp recording. Still think mid-late 85 was when the Smiths were at their best live.
From my calculations, I've just a couple of shows to go before we have all the available Smiths concerts up on this site. I have a few more tapes that I haven't transferred, which are already up here, which I guess I may have lower gen / different recordings for. Not sure whether its worth putting those up here?
I guess I'll put the last 2 up over the next couple of weeks, and then have a think. Anyone with any requests etc, feel free to voice them

Thanks for this, love these extended Barbarism Begins from part of that tour.
Any chance of a future speed-corrected version?

I say yes. Your versions are often better / lower generation than what is commonly circulated...
I have a few shows I was waiting to put up because I figured you would eventually put up a better version. I think some of those shows were recorded by your friend Paul.
thanks again for sharing these treasures!
