The Smiths - Frankly, Mr Shankly (Demo)



The Smiths demo's were released on a bootleg (blue vinyl double LP), and last week someone made a really good 320 kbps rip and posted it online. It's everywhere now and it's also here. The tracks sound as if the band are playing live in a studio, if you love The Smiths you shouldn't miss this. The 'Frankly, Mr Shankley' demo is below and has a trumpet!

Thank you. I used to have a cassette of this and my car tape machine ate it about fifteen years ago.
A true delight to find this again.
Cheers
