Good list - I'll be using it as a guide when I try to get into his solo stuff again. Love The Smiths but only heard his first solo album.

But btw, that fun fact is wrong: Will Smith wasn't even famous at the time. They just picked The Smiths because it was a really ordinary name compared to the really over the top names of 80s bands at the time.
