Disguised In Black
A vinyl bootleg of The Sisters of Mercy's performance on 13th March 1985 at Tiffany's, Newcastle, UK.
The present 2 LPs give a complete recording of the entire gig with excellent sound quality.
This bootleg was released as a first edition shortly after the actual gig in 1985, and then again in 1991.
Most likely, this vinyl pressing is based on a cassette bootleg from the gig,
see Disguised In Black (cassette) and also discogs/Disguised In Black Cassette.
In 1990, a different label also issued a bootleg CD with almost identical content and most similar artwork.
All Information on that one can be found under Disguised In Black (CD).
