    Different mixes and edits of The Smiths and Morrissey songs

    I’m interested in different mixes and edits of songs by The Smiths and Morrissey and where they could have been or can still be found either on vinyl, CD or download.

    Morrissey A-Z: "He Cried"

    The title is also a nice nod to The Shangri-Las who had a song with the same name. I am a big fan of the Maladjusted album and this track.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Get off the Stage"

    I’d rather listen to this than My Life is a Succession of People Saying Goodbye. I can, however, live without both.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Father Who Must Be Killed, The"

    It’s obviously about a murder-suicide and the fact that there will be “No Bible-belters to mess with me” when she is dead gives a pretty big clue as to the motive for her actions. I think it’s a wonderful lyric.

    Stephen Street says he would still work with Morrissey

    It’s a tricky one but I imagine there was not a 50/50 split initially between royalties and after the success of the first few Morrissey solo singles Mr. Street wanted a bigger share. I can see both sides but Morrissey does seem to veer towards meanness. I think Streety would have made a lot of...

    Nick Kent talks Morrissey and The Smiths in DN interview - Fredrik Strage / Morrissey 61 Facebook group

    I once worked with Tony Wilson and he had people walking around on eggshells he was so demanding. He did seem like a nice person though. A gentle contradiction.

    Nick Kent talks Morrissey and The Smiths in DN interview - Fredrik Strage / Morrissey 61 Facebook group

    There are a few anecdotes that defy belief in Autobiography. The idea that Joe Moss wanted to replace Morrissey in 1984 also seems hard to believe. With regards to that Nick Kent story in the book the extracts of the letter Nick Kent supposedly sent do sound real.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Father Who Must Be Killed, The"

    It’s one of my absolute favourite Morrissey songs. I can’t believe its not more popular. It’s a funny old world.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Fantastic Bird"

    I don’t really get this song at all but I don’t jump to switch it off. Unfathomable in a bad way.

    The new release of “That’s Entertainment” is perplexing even by Morrissey’s standards

    I always liked Morrissey’s version but to release another souped up version is just a strange decision. It sounds great and the new parts do add something but to bring out another recording of a cover version from almost 30 years ago with musical parts added recently is a strange move. The vocal...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Dagenham Dave"

    The tune is really nothing without the wonderful vocal melody created by Moz. Johnny Marr’s ”intricate” riffs sometimes have all the passion of a child who has memorised how to complete a Rubik’s Cube.

    Johnny Marr video - Nowhere Fast

    Thus proving Morrissey was three-quarters to four-fifths of the appeal of The Smiths.
