MP3: The Smiths - Live in Los Angeles 1986

Okay. I am currently very busy. Today I handed in my masters dissertation. In a few hours I turn my pc off and pack it away ready to move to my new flat. I won't have internet access for maybe a week or so, so don't expect any updates in that time, but keep checking back anyway because I might be lucky and sort it out quickly. I will also be losing my current webspace, so many of the pictures and mp3s on here won't be accessible from when my ISP deactivates it, but as they're useless and can't get anything right, who knows when that will be. But in case they do, i recommend you download any of the songs from my recent posts ASAP.

Right then! For a special goodbye for now treat, i've got an entire show (minus two songs) from The Smiths. Recorded in Los Angeles on the 26th August 1986 as part of the American part of the Queen Is Dead tour, it's a really great gig with a stunning setlist and a rather maniacal crowd. Apparently they got so out of control during the Smiths two day stint in LA that on the second night the army were called to keep them in order. As I said this is missing two songs, Hand In Glove and Bigmouth Strikes Again, which aren't on my copy of the bootleg, but i'm sure you won't mind too much considering how good the stuff that's here is. For more info on this gig check out the invaluable Passions Just Like Mine. And until I type to you next, take care everyone.

Are you sure this was from 8/26/86?
The 'Passions Just Like Mine' site has a slightly different setlist order for the 26th.

And I take it that "Hand In Glove" and "Bigmouth Strikes Again" were encores?

OK, to be more specific, the Passions site lists "Meat Is Murder" & "Reel Around The Fountain" in the set.
