Some Girls Wander By Mistake (German Invitation Promo)
This promo item was send out by
The Sisters of Mercy's then record
company EastWest to journalists
and radio people as an invitation for
a vernissage promoting the lauch of
Abriss-Galerie, Hamburg, Germany
on April 6th 1992.
- Label: EastWest
- Catalogue#: none
- Format: 12" vinyl LP - alledgedly unplayable
- Released: 1992 (Germany)
- The complete promo package included
- a cardboard customised envelope sealed with an LP-logo sticker
- a promo tape and a promo CD of Some Girls Wander By Mistake,
- and well a done booklet with a Sisters biography.
- Not all invitees received the full package. Partly, only the invitation promo record was sent.
Apparently, that part of the package was always sent "signed for" in an individual plastic envelop, anyway,
while the cardboard envelop was sent in another plastic wrap with different mail at "letter" postage rate.
- The record itself has a sticker saying "DIESE PLATTE IST NICHT ZUM ABSPIELEN GEEIGNET"
which translates into "This record is not suitable for playing".
- Despite this sticker, some people have (of course) tried to play this record.
They found what actually is on this record is José Carreras sings Andrew LLoyd Webber
