Beethoven Was Deaf is a live album by Morrissey, recorded around the time of the tour for Your Arsenal. The songs were recorded live at Paris Zenith on 22 December 1992, except for the titles followed by a *, which were recorded live in London 2 days before. The sleeve notes incorrectly state that all songs are from the Paris concert. On 14 December 2010, it was announced that EMI had deleted this album along with World of Morrissey and Suedehead: The Best of Morrissey from its catalogue.

Etchings on vinylEdit

WOULD YOU RISK IT FOR A BISCUIT/none

This is a reference to a 1970s UK TV commercial for a chocolate-covered muesli bar called 'Swisskit' where a character would say "I'll risk it for a Swisskit" before skiing down a mountain and crashing.[1]
