5.0 out of 5 stars There is a Light that Never Goes Out., 3 Jan 2004
This review is from: The Smiths: Songs That Saved Your Life (Paperback)
Sometime during the mid 1980s my musical perspective changed due entirely to Messrs Morrissey, Marr, Rourke and Joyce.
This book is a must for Smiths enthusiasts everywhere. The author is a fan whose attention to detail is quite remarkable, (hands up who new 'How Soon is Now?' was first performed live at Gloucester Leisure Centre on 24th September 1984?).
A fascinating picture is painted of the band through detailed analysis of their songs/recording sessions. It's a book that reads like a biography while being the ideal accompaniment to the records themselves as a comprehensive reference work. Each song carries details about where and when it was recorded, who produced it, where it can be found, whether it was played live, performed on television, featured on the radio. As a fan, I love it.
Stop me if you think you've heard this one before, I know it's over, but there are some lights that will never go out.
