LADY ELEANOR MUSIC REVIEW: Songs that Saved Your Life: The Art of the Smiths 1982-87 - Simon Goddard

Release Date: 08/02/13
Publisher: Titan 


'Songs That Saved Your Life - The Art of The Smiths 1982 -87' reveals the stories behind every track (including unreleased out-takes), catalogues all the group's UK television, radio and concert appearances and features interviews with original band members, producers and associates.


As a Manchester person and a huge fan of Morrissey, I just had to get this title when I heard about its release, it delves into the history of the songs, the meanings and of course the time to which each was written. Its carefully researched, written with clarity and for me as a fan, is something that will sit on the shelves with my Smiths CD’s to peruse when I’m in the mood. Definitely one of the better titles out there and something that I’ll enjoy quite a few times.
