The Smiths: The Troy Tate Sessions

TREON026
The Troy Tate Sessions is a two part collection of 27 tracks from The Smiths aborted studio sessions for The Smiths 1984 debut album. Recorded in the Summer of 1983 in Elephant studios in Wapping the band completed 14 tracks with former Tear Drops Explode guitarist Troy Tate. Everything was running smoothly until doubts began to arise at the quality of the recordings. A rough cassette version of the sessions were passed on to producer John Porter with a view to him remixing them but after listening to them he requested to hear the original masters under studio conditions. Porter was so unimpressed with the results that he concluded that it might be best to scrap the tapes and re-record the material. The band did just that.

Notes:
