THE SMITHS – 1983; Troy Tate Abandoned Sessions LP
pierwsza, niepublikowana wersja debiutanckiej płyty The Smiths
When The Smiths recorded their famous debut album they first had Troy Tate as a producer. They weren’t entirely pleased with the final production, so they re-recorded the album with John Porter.
The story of The Troy Tate Sessions is legendary among fans of The Smiths. The Smiths had recorded 14 songs with producer Troy Tate in the summer of 1983, 13 of which were supposed to become their debut album, seemingly titled “The Hand That Rocks The Cradle”. Disagreements arose regarding the sound production, and The Smiths end up going to John Porter, who produced from scratch what is considered the first official Smiths album, the self-titled “The Smiths”.
