RE-UPLOAD: The Sisters of Mercy - King Georges Hall, Blackburn, UK - 21.03.1985 (Flac)

This is the only time the band played "Stairway To Heaven" as a stand alone track, even if they give up just after 2 minutes... Another upgrade to Flac. Thanks to the original uploader.

Lineage: Cassette (unknown gen) > ION Tape2PC Deck > Audacity > CD Wave > TLH (Flac Lvl 6) > Dime

Bought at a records fair in Derby sometime in 1987

Along with the Stuttgart 1984-11-12 show, this is possibly my favourite Sisters bootleg,
some great between-song banter from Eldritch.This is a great sounding show, at times it's
like a soundboard. This doesn't seem to circulate as much as some of the others from this
tour like the Lyceum, Newcastle and Brighton shows. Any show with 'Some Kind of Stranger'
deserves a listen and add 'Stairway' in there with the priceless, 'There's a bus goes now from
out there and you'd be advised...' intro and you've got a must have show.

Scan of tape inlay included.
