Formed in 1982, The Smiths’ brief but brilliant career lasted just five years - but the music they left behind distinguished them as one of the greatest British guitar groups of all time.

‘Songs That Saved Your Life - The Art of The Smiths 1982-87’ reveals the stories behind every track (including unreleased out-takes), catalogues all the group’s UK television, radio and concert appearances and features interviews with original band members, producers and associates.
