Further Remarks

  • Limited Edition of 100 machine-numbered copies
  • The cover consists of a white wrap-around sleeve with Merciful Release logo on the front.
  • The cover back lists the tracks in mixed order. Apart from the numbering, it only notes:
ALL UNRELEASED DEMO'S RECORDED 1983 - which is true for only a part of the tracks.
  • In addition, the vinyls are wrapped in a coloured cover showing an excerpt from an official
press photo of Andrew Eldritch formerly featured in Melody Maker, Issue 5 September 1987

  • In a way it seems doubtful that the coloured cover should be the insert.
After all, both items are wrap-around covers so that the white one could
possibly as well go as an insert on the inside ...
  • The vinyls are all coloured in a different tone of pink or purple:
mauve, blackberry pink and dark pink vinyl.
  • The labels on all three records are plain white.

These tracks were recorded live during the BBC Radio One Kid Jenson Show of March 6th, 1983
Allegedly, these recordings were from the Royal Albert Hall 1985, while some sources name "Demos 1984"
or "Demos 1985" as their origin. To all likeliness, they come from the Strawberry Sessions 1984
