The Smiths – This Charming Man (12″)


Very neglected and under fed this blog needs a definite injection of TLC.

Play this to anyone and then ask when it was released ? the answer would probably not be 1983!!!

This was only their second single, a classic in both lyric and music.

Both the earlier “London” version and the widely known “Manchester” versions are here.

Amongst a wall of guitar is the tale of a gay encounter on the road.

B sides “Wonderful Woman” and “Accept Yourself” really showed what potential this new band had.
