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.”.<->.

This blog is merely an index with public links for audio recordings of independent origin (ROIO) which have not been officially released. No audio or video content is hosted here. We only provide meta information files for the ROIOs. If you're an artist (or a legal representative of an artist or its estate) and you don't want your ROIOs shared on this blog for FREE among your fans, you may opt out any time by sending e-mail to the site admin. We will then put you in our list of not allowed artists. This will halt all sharing of your ROIOs in this blog within minutes. BTW, the ROIOs exist, you can't make them vanish. So, why not let your fans get them for free from one another instead of having to purchase them from commercial bootleggers on auction sites?
