Notes: Someone made a Smiths vinyl bootleg called Unreleased Demos & Instrumentals. Someone else made a rip of the (pretty illuminating, great) 16-track collection that features, among other things, a couple of previously unreleased Johnny Marr instrumentals (one heavier than the other).
Hardcore fans may note it also includes the version of “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” with a final refrain of “there is a light in your eyes and it never goes out” as well as the version of “Death Of A Disco Dancer” with “the improvised ‘whistled solo’ as mentioned in Simon Goddard’s The Smiths – Songs That Saved Your Life.”.<- stereogum.com>.
