Tracks

Flood I 3:25



Sources

Flood I is actually the Flood II demo track, though.


Remarks

  • Great sound quality
  • A limited edtion of 200 copies in total
  • The single comes in a hand-numbered cover with a folded white cardboard inner sleeve
  • In fact, this is a German release. The title on the cover front and the Lucretia lyrics
    on the back cover in Japanese characters are rather meant to impress potential customers of various sorts...
  • The same accounts for all the Merciful Release and WEA logos. Although the artwork of present release
    reminds strongly of the Dominion single, this is a rare, but not an official release!
  • Available on medium blue and light blue vinyl, while colours of both versions vary slightly as well.
  • The label on side A shows a picture detail from an unknown painting in levels of grey

The actual colour of the medium blue vinyl is hard to get in a photo.
Insofar you find here - as an indicator - a comparison with the Remasters Sampler.

1. Testpressings

Testpressing (without cover) offered together with
a light (sky) blue version of the Floodland Demos 7"
  • Only three copies of the testpressings shown above do exist.
  • One of them does not have a cover. The other two have fold-out covers.
  • The cover of the other two differs remarkably from the final Floodland Demos 7" cover.
  • Again, these are alledgedly a Merciful Release
    (according to the logo and print), but of course they are not.
  • The tracks are the same as on the above Floodland Demos 7",
    though in reverse order and with partly different song titles:
    - Side A - Flood I is noted as Empire Down
    - Side B - Lucretia, My Reflection is noted as Lucretia 2
  • Black vinyl with white labels marked with some lines
    consisting of the letter "P" in turns with the equals sign ("=")
  • Matrix #s are identical with those of the above Floodland Demos 7":
    - Side A: WASTED BUCHS 08/15 /A et
    - Side B: WASTED BUCHS 08/15 /B et


Floodland Demos 7" - Testpressing (sold without cover)
Floodland Demos 7" - light blue vinyl with cover (back)




2. Acetates

  • Some 15 acetates (7") do allegedly exist, but only 6 - 8 have surfaced so far.
  • All of them are accompanied by an insert
