KEY:
 HCP= Highest Chart Position

First pressing 12"s are labeled Made in England on the record 
label,rather than France, Germany or Holland and omit the 
'unauthorised...' warning around the record label. Other things 
common to first pressings also use the SOM logo font [caslon
antique] on the spine and gloss black inner sleeves. WYDSM only 
has German pressings though.

First pressing 7"s are commonly labeled 'made in france' and/or 
with semi-circular cutout at the top of the sleeve to facilitate 
grasping the record and omit the 'unauthorised...' warning.
May also have 'made in england' handstamped on the sleeve.

Standard Sisters sleeve style is a black border with rectangular
artwork and 'the Sisters of Mercy' underneath.

Band personnel goes by the following key:

SIS 1= Craig Adams-bass     SIS 2= Craig Adams-bass
       Gary Marx-guitar            Gary Marx-guitar
       Ben Gunn-Guitar             Wayne Hussey-guitar

       Tim Brecheno-guitar
       Andreas Bruhn-guitar

All band line-ups include:

Line-ups featuring only Andrew Eldritch and one other person will

 intro,as well as the lines "burn me/burn me/burn me/burn me       
 down" probably as _very_ early version of the Reptile House       
 song. It was used as the backwards part of the RH Burn. Lights    
 ]s the Floorshow ep version. The two Valentines have no real      
 difference. Phantom is the same version that is on Studiouttakes

NOTES: Front cover is TOL turned 90 degrees right. Close single   
 cam with tripod. Perhaps the only video of the Sisters first US   
 tour. They use the drum track to Ghostrider for Sister Ray,       
 resulting in a few minutes of extra drumming after they leave     
 the stage. GM breaks a string just as Emma starts.
