1984 Peel Session on Spotify

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.

Is it just my copy or is there little to no top end on the 84 session?
The 82 & 83 are lovely and crisp, but the 84 one seems to be quite dull in comparison
Cheers.

'83 has got Burn labelled as Heartland, Heartland labelled as Valentine, and Valentine labelled as Burn. Jolene they got right.
I got this from Spotify support:
We’ve checked it out and see what you mean, so we’ve passed it on to the Content team for review. Hopefully they’ll have this sorted for you soon. Please be aware this could take several weeks to be reflected in the app.
Thanks Mark.

It's not just you, and I've noticed this on '84 from other sources too. The top end is actually there, it's just seriously muted by comparison and the whole thing needs some serious EQ to make it consistent with the others. Which is seriously weird if intentional.
If I told them once, I told them a hundred times to put 'Spinal Tap' first and 'Puppet Show' last.

Glad it's not just me then. Thanks for that.
& you're right. It's way down in the mix. Maybe it was just a case of them getting used to the new Doktor.
Cheers.

In other news, these releases are now accessible in Ireland on Spotify and Apple Music. Dunno why they weren't before but now you know.

Germany too. Maybe it was some licensing/rights issue?

Still has the start of 'No Time To Cry' missing and a tape slipping noise in 'Floorshow.' Managed to fix those but surely the original masters haven't been damaged in this way?

Edit - Thinking about this. When 6 Music were rebroadcasting the sessions, they probably wouldn't have moved the original tapes. I suspect someone was sent to make recordings of them, and didn't make a particularly good job of it, which is where the missing parts and badly loaded tape noise could have come from. I also suspect that nobody went back to the master tapes for Spotify, Amazon, etc. which is why the errors are still there. The missing top end could be down to the abilities of whoever made the recording of the 84 session. They didn't even manage to label the tracks correctly either. Reminds me of the ‘Visioin Thing’ spine. The Sisters back catalogue. Not especially well served is it?
