The Sisters of Mercy will continue to spotlight different eras of its acclaimed discography this summer with a new vinyl box set that focuses on the band’s early years, as well as their last officially released studio recordings. The set includes four 180-gram vinyl records, two 12” vinyl singles and a card slipcase. The first single is a re-recorded version of Temple of Love from 1992 that features Israeli vocalist Ofra Haza, and remains SOM’s biggest international hit, peaking at No3 on the UK charts. The second is Under The Gun, their final release, from 1993, which includes an updated version of Alice.
This double compilation retraces their formative years and rise to cult acclaim. It includes three songs from 1980: The Damage Done, Watch, and Home Of The Hit-Men. Also included in this Box Set is the band’s 1982 follow-up single Body Electric and Adrenochrome. It also features a cover of the Stooges’ 1969 and more.
The first LP’s flipside collects music that originally appeared on The Sisters Of Mercy’s second EP, The Reptile House (1983). Among tracks are Kiss The Carpet, Burn, and the haunting Lights. Later that year the band released the single Temple of Love backed with Heartland and a cover the Rolling Stones’ Gimme Shelter, all of which are included here.
This collection’s title comes from a lyric in the Leonard Cohen song Teachers, a track the Sisters cover frequently in concert.
LP Box Set – 4LP plus Two 12” Singles and card slipcase.
