JOHNNY MARR - KCRW FM Session 2013 (Flac)

#12 Special Post

I posted a series of special posts in July (see here) and this should have been included. I finally discovered it on a hard drive and make it available now. It was recorded by the esteemed 'Nibbler' - a Dime regular and provider of many high quality KCRW sessions.

Original Notes:
Legendary guitarist for The Smiths, Johnny Marr recently performed several classics plus some of his new songs in the intimate setting of Apogee Studio. KCRW FM broadcast highlights from the evening on Morning Becomes Eclectic.
