Now this would have been a silly question back in when I got into the Smiths, because there was no "Morrissey solo" music yet
However, many years have gone by and for our younger fans, I can see how its quite possible that they did not get into "The Smiths" first
For me personally, I first encountered this "Morrissey first, Smiths second" phenomena sometime in 1996
See, I had this girlfriend(@ the time) who had been listening to my tapes a lot, particularly the first 4 Moz albums, when she stumbled upon a Smiths best of mine.
She played it, adored it, and commented: "It's like Morrissey, but with better music!"
This comment has stayed with me after all these years, and I am just wondering if any other people have had similar experiences.
