And the story goes there's ZERO tampering with the audio. No overdubs? No punch ins or fixits? They managed a perfect sound level and Moz sounds at the top of his game. It's even better than "Who Put The M In Manchester".
After I posted I thought that I'm probably being really typical because, as Vegan has pointed out, lots of people here think earlier is better, but I still feel like Beethoven Was Deaf is a great live album, and maybe even better than Rank. I also recommend "Introducing Morrissey" most of which is on youtube.
Maybe I will appreciate Live at Earls Court more later, but I don't really want to hear Morrissey sing The Smiths, so that's not a selling point, and putting nine songs from record is pushing it, but I never realized that. I hate "You're The One For Me, Fatty" but other than that it's got some really great versions of a lot of my favorites.
Just placed an order. It's out of print here in the states but not hard to find. In fact all of his CDs are easy to find and disturbingly cheap. What about DVDs? I have "25 Live" and "Who Put The M In Manchester". I also have the bonus DVD on "Your Arsenal", which is VHS quality if you ask me. Which DVD should I get next?
He/she is a new fan, you hateful cretin. What's so hard to understand about that?I can't take any of your comments seriously now, no wonder you think Kiss Me A Lot Is awesome, you mustve come into morrissey at the back end of his career. I mean, who hasnt heard beethoven was deaf, plastic fan.

'Beethoven' was back in the days when Moz only had three studio albums out, and was still heroically refusing to perform any Smiths songs live - so yeah, the setlist is super 'Your Arsenal'-heavy, but it's a really vibrant document of the tour. I'd say 'Jack the Ripper', 'The Loop' and 'We'll Let You Know' piss all over the studio versions - Morrissey's falsetto on the last of these is epic, whereas on the record it's mixed so low you can barely make it out.
