THE SMITHS - EDEN STUDIOS DEMO CASSETTE (PRE FIRST ALBUM)

THE SMITHS - EDEN STUDIOS DEMO CASSETTE (PRE FIRST ALBUM). Amazing piece of Smiths history with this fascinating 14 track demo cassette, this artefact coming from Geoff Travis' Rough Trade archive. The cassette (Eden Studios Ltd) contains a total of 14 tracks - on one side are the 7 tracks as per the handwritten inlay card and include I Don't Owe You Anything, These Things Take Time, The Hand That Rocks The Cradle, Back To The Old House, You've Got Everything Now, Reel Around The Fountain and Miserable Lie - these are demos and differ to that of the final commercially released recordings. On the flip side the tracks run as follows - Hand That Rocks The Crade, Pretty Girls Make Graves, Hand in Glove, What Difference Does it Make, Suffer Little Children (instrumental), You've Got Everything Now (instrumental) and last but not least Reel Around The Fountain. These versions are again demos that are significantly different to the commercially released versions - the vast majority start with clicking drumsticks. The A side label has handwritten: ''The Smiths ASST Mixes - 12 Nov'''. The cassette is in excellent condition.

Sold for £4,100
