A remaster based primarily on this recording.
Here is an MP3 preview. It starts with about 30 seconds taken from the source recording, followed by the same material taken from the remaster.
1. Montagues and Capulets (intro)
2. Shakespeare's Sister
3. I Want The One I Can't Have
4. Vicar In A Tutu
5. Frankly, Mr Shankly
6. (Marie's The Name) His Latest Flame/Rusholme Ruffians
7. The Boy With The Thorn In His Side
8. Cemetry Gates
9. Nowhere Fast
10. What She Said
11. There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
12. Bigmouth Strikes Again
13. William, It Was Really Nothing
14. Meat Is Murder
15. Stretch Out And Wait
The Smiths headlined a benefit concert for members of Liverpool City Council, who were being taken to court for refusing to set the rates, as part of a protest against rate-capping. Slightly complicated - I've tried to explain it in the liner notes. The gig was organised by Tony Wilson, and New Order, The Fall and John Cooper Clarke were also on the bill - all for £6. It was the first proper gig by the Smiths after they recorded The Queen Is Dead (they had played a few songs at the Red Wedge gig in Newcastle just over a week earlier) and featured the first performances of There Is A Light... and Cemetry Gates. The version of Meat Is Murder has an extra verse/coda which I haven't heard on any other recordings.
The source recording seems to be derived from a soundboard or pro-recording (it may be an audience recording, but I don't think so). I think the remaster makes quite a massive difference, putting this gig into the premier league of live Smiths recordings in circulation. I've also made use of audience recordings by Soundsville Steve and The Big Bopper, in particular because the main recording is missing a few seconds of audio in two places. I think I've done quite a good job of this, although you can tell.
Cover star is Bill Shankly.

Looking forward to this. I think your cover image is broken here. I use imgur.

Much appreciated. This is one I needed to upgrade from mp3 anyway, and it is much better. My copy sounded slowed down and muted. Also, I love the art and notes in the .pdf file. Good job.
