The Smiths and Morrissey Top 10 List

Keep in mind these lists are purely subjective. They just reflect my own preferences, as well as the music I have in my own collection (since I can't rate something I have never heard).  This list also really only reflects bootlegs up and including 1997.  There are so many excellent recordings from both the 1999 and 2000 tour that I am going to have to sit down, give them all a listen and then re-rank the Morrissey shows. For now however the list stands as it is.
