Not really, that one is before the lineup was settled.
There are Troy Tate sessions on here, which pre-date the released recording of The Smiths.

The first two sessions were the Drone demos and the Decibel demos. Neither are in general circulation but at least the latter are in the hands of collectors. I know a couple of people with them.
Also pre-Tate is the home recording of I Want A Boy For My Birthday.

So David, are the Decibel demos in a digital format? Have you heard them? Any chance of them being leaked by one of these kind souls that currently possess them? :shock:

Ah... the Decibel demos: four songs on a 16 track re-conditioned Ampex reel-to-reel tape. I nearly spent a lot of money buying it. It's been recorded to CD both as a master mix and as separate tracks. Unfortunately kept close to the collector's chest.
