Live At Earl's Court
Attack Records

Morrissey has always been an iconic enigma, which is why it is so strange to see him become a pop star. With the release of You Are The Quarry, Morrissey achieved global acceptance - in part because of a nicely plotted media campaign. The 43 year old crooner gave a rare interview to Esquire Magazine, appeared on Late Night with Craig Kilborn numerous times and set out on a sold out world tour. Recorded on December 18th in London, Live At Earl's Court is the first sanctioned live record since 1993's Beethoven Was Deaf. The concert set includes classic Smiths tunes, "How Soon Is Now?", "Big Mouth Strikes Again"," Shoplifters of the World Unite" and "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved me". Morrissey dips deep into his own catalogue with the renowned "November Spawned a Monster" and "The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get". He respectively tips his hat to punk pioneer Patti Smith with his rendition of "Redondo Beach", but that is the extent of the surprises. Naturally, songs from the album responsible for the tour are speckled through out the 18 track disc. Morrissey has aged like a fine wine, but silver temples and all, he still proves to be a dynamic performer and his timeless voice is as incredible as ever.
