RSD BBC Sessions release

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

This is why he was banned from HL.
WTF is a CD acetate?
Reported for a few different reasons. Counterfeit media, copyright, fraudulent listing.

Yeah, I guess it's the hard drive with the WAVs he downloaded a few years ago that has gathered a little dust ...
and who would have thought of that given the fact that Australian bootleggers did not waste much time afterwards ...

The mislabelled Kid Jenson tracks on iTunes don’t look like they will be corrected.
Doesn’t bode well for the LP release.

I'd sooner have the tracks out there, even if mislabelled, to be honest. It's true that the neglectful mismanagement of the Sisters back catalog has been shocking, but the other side of the coin is that if one gets Von involved to do it properly, it will likely never happen.

Obvious best case is quality releases on-schedule, and that's what we all want. But when forced to choose between two less-favourable extremes, I'd say go for the one that gets the tracks out.
If I told them once, I told them a hundred times to put 'Spinal Tap' first and 'Puppet Show' last.

Obviously that’s the preferred scenario.
I’m hoping this is released on CD as I don’t have a turntable.
Of course if they don’t correct the mislabelled tracks it takes me no further forward...

It isn't that hard to rename the mislabelled tracks surely?
Cheers.

Took a look at EastWest's website once. Not a single Sisters mention, in the label history, former artist roster, nowhere.

Von really, royally pissed people off there, to make them disown him entirely. Warner has treated the back catalogue as the red-headed stepchild since.

Ironic, considering the labour pains that went into the record deal in the 80's.

To be honest, whilst The Girls have an importance to we few, I doubt anyone of any significance at EastWest ever gives them a passing thought as they had hundreds of bigger acts pass through their business.

Well I’ve downloaded the mislabelled tracks and re-named them.
I now have a new twelve track sessions playlist.
It remains to be seen if when I next sinc my iPhone with iTunes if it stays that way or “reverts”.
Time will tell.
