The Smiths is the eponymous debut studio album by English rock band the Smiths, released on 20 February 1984 by Rough Trade Records. After the original production by Troy Tate was felt to be inadequate, John Porter re-recorded the album in London, Manchester and Stockport during breaks in the band's UK tour during September 1983. The album was well received by critics and listeners, and reached number two on the UK Albums Chart, staying on the chart for 33 weeks

The Smiths Tracklist. 1. Reel Around the Fountain Lyrics. Originally scheduled to be released in late 1983, the release was pushed back due to a change in production and a subsequent re-recording of the entire album. The band had originally selected former The Teardrop Explodes guitarist Troy Tate as the album’s producer, but after a series of talks between the head of the label and producer John Porter, the latter said that the original mix was unsalvageable and offered to re-record the entire album himself.

Despite this, none of them have managed to replicate the enduring success they enjoyed as a united front. Even Mozza's career has waned into boozy middle age. by contrast, their music together has transcended generations. The Smiths are true icons.

Album · 1984 · 11 Songs. Even in an era of radical post-punk, The Smiths is an utterly unique debut. From the woozy charms of Reel Around the Fountain, Morrissey’s fragile croon commences its love affair with Johnny Marr’s twinkling guitar. The band brings fire to You’ve Got Everything Now and This Charming Man, a Motown dance beat embroidered with slippery guitar. Gentle in its rage, Suffer Little Children takes on child abuse as no other band could, while the group’s singular allure glows within the dreamy licks of I Don’t Owe You Anything.
