The Smiths – Reel Around The Fountain (1983)

The summer of 1983 was a pretty bad time. Dropped out of University (I could see, even then, that there was no future in IT …)

Pointless existence; even the Crispy Ambulance bootlegs were wearing thin.

Out of the blue, the first Peel Session by The Smiths raised the bar for “indie” music too a level never surpassed. Even before they had a record out, the Peel version of “Reel Around the Fountain” was installed as one of the best records ever made. The subsequent version on the debut LP in 1984 was pretty good with added piano, but the 1983 version is the one – pop music perfection.

Oh, I wouldn’t say no

Peel version, LP version and then live ….
