Release Notes

  • Label:
  • Catalogue#: DG001
  • Format: 7" vinyl single
  • Released: ca. 1988


Side A -   Red Skies Disappear             Side B -   Marian (instrumental)


  • Both tracks are demos.

ELEKTRA Promo Card 1988
  - Andrew Eldritch    - Patricia Morrison


  • Limited edition of originally 250-300 copies
The quality of the pressing was rather poor and had the recording on the vinyls run too slow.
A large number of records were destroyed only 50-120 copies are said to be left.
  • Black vinyls with plain white labels
  • Run-out etching on Side A only: DG001
  • The record come in a thin paper cover with a b/w picture of Andrew Eldritch on the front;
the latter was taken from an ELEKTRA Promo Card of 1988, although, the demo tracks used
for this release were recorded much earlier, years before Patricia Morrison joined the band.
  • Unfortunately, part of these covers did also lack quality production. Some of them were cut
in the wrong place and glued on the cover front instead of the side.
