I can't say that I've ever heard this version of Rusholme Ruffians before. Rips coming soon.
If it is the ones I am thinking about,(which I am 99% sure) these have been shared as "Smiths Unreleased Instrumental 1" and Smiths Unreleased Instrumental 2" for years. But they are not The Smiths, it is two instrumental's from the Mirval Sessions. I have a factory pressed bootleg CD and 2 bootleg records, both LP's and CD have those exact same title for both. By them saying "Raw Demos" is right. You can barley hear them and they sound like crap.
Different lyrics, it is just fade outs, BBC sessions and the demo of THTRTC. The only thing that might be different is it might be the demo of "Shankly", "Vulgar Picture" and the instrumental of "Shoplifters". But it does not say Shoplifters is Instrumental so it is probably a BBC session or live. But those songs we all have and can be downloaded here.
I could be wrong, I hope I am, but I wouldn't count on it and I hope a lot of people didn't get burned.
I see that Everything English is no longer listing this item for sale...
I wonder, have M&M's lawyers got to them?
Whoever bought and received a copy may have a very rare record on their hands...
...unfortunately, I was one of those holding out to see what it was... bugger!
I ordered mine on ebay yesterday and it looks like there is still 2 left at the moment
looks like only 1 left now
I ordered mine from Everything English yesterday morning and I got an email last night saying that it has shipped!
They might just be temporarily out of stock at the moment...
Either way, good luck in finding one.
I agree. Reminds me of when Johnny sang it at the Manchester v Cancer gig.Hey Dave,
I am the same as IR. I ordered mine from Everything English and got the shipping notice. There is one on Ebay now, it was just put on there, so it might get snatched quick. Is it me, or do you guys like the version of "There Is A Light" on this boot better than the official one? It is like Morrissey is singing with more passion.
