Re: Official 'Melkweg 1984' LP on orange vinyl?

It's now on Rough Trade's catalog online but not in stock. https://www.roughtrade.com/gb/the-sisters-of-mercy/melkweg-amsterdam-june-2nd-1984 I bought my copy at Amoeba in Los Angeles, also a reputable store. Wonder if this release benefits from the same loophole as some Italian CD boots in the 90s...

Re: Top 20 most expensive Sisters bootlegs sold on eBay in 2020

I guess that collectibles are one of the niches that had a pandemic upside? Yes, that's definitely the case. I believe also the Discogs marketplace had its best year ever in 2020, and Omega Auctions is seeing great numbers as well. COVID provides people with more time and, paradoxically -- for thos...

where were the 1982 portastudio demos recorded?

It is widely stated online that the demos initially released on the HARD REIGN bootleg LP come from a recording session that took place in September 1982 with John Ashton at Strawberry Studios, Stockport. I wonder if there is any evidence to support this claim. First of all, the tracks seem to origi...

was VT released on vinyl in the US ?

can't seem to find any info about a US version of the LP (original release, not re-release)

the Elektra CD exists, and so does the tape, but what about an Elektra vinyl album?

does it even exist? anybody has it?
