Listen: The Smiths, ‘The Queen is Dead’ — full live version of classic 1986 album

Now that the promotional campaign for the reissue of The Smiths’ classic 1986 album The Queen is Dead has resulted in the release of previously unreleased live versions of every song off that record, we’ve done the obvious and stitched them together into a full-album playlist.

Below, listen to a full live version of The Queen is Dead — made up of individual live tracks recorded at various shows on the band’s 1986 tours of the U.S. and the U.K. — via Spotify.

The multi-disc reissue of The Queen is Dead, which is due out Oct. 20, will include a previously unreleased live album, just not this one.




  1. Nice work! Thank you!

  2. Are these on tracks through any digital download site?

  3. All are available from Amazon (MP3 only). I was able to get FLAC versions using a combination of 7Digital and Juno Download, although @ roughly $2.00 per track, it winds up being $20.00 for the full set.
