The Troy Tate Sessions is a two part collection of 27 tracks from The Smiths aborted studio sessions for The Smiths 1984 debut album. Recorded in the Summer of 1983 in Elephant studios in Wapping the band completed 14 tracks with former Tear Drops Explode guitarist Troy Tate. Everything was running smoothly until doubts began to arise at the quality of the recordings. A rough cassette version of the sessions were passed on to producer John Porter with a view to him remixing them but after listening to them he requested to hear the original masters under studio conditions.

Troy Tate Recordings Complete - smithstorrents. The Smiths recorded demos at Decibel Studios and Drone Studios in 1982, then signed to Rough Trade then recorded a couple of singles in Strawberry Studios. For the first album, Rough Trade hired Troy Tate to produce and recorded the album in Elephant Studios. Despite completing the album the band weren't happy with the sound and re-recorded the whole album again in London with John Porter producing. A few official tracks of that first Troy Tate album have been released, but most of it hasn't. On bootlegs, various mixes of these sessions have been released. It's never been clear what was due to be officially released.
The Smiths is the debut studio album by English rock band the Smiths, recorded in 1983 and released on 20 February 1984 by record label Rough Trade. 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 the critics as well as the public; it reached number two on the UK Albums Chart and stayed on the chart for 33 weeks
