This is a fully incomplete list of recording and demo sessions with The Sisters of Mercy and not all of them have a page in this wiki as yet.

We recommend, you also check the external links given under each entry for more information and some very interesting and enlightening reads,

see also the UltimateSistersGuide/Radio & Recording Sessions.

With regard to the 1984/1985 production era for The Sisters debut studio album First And Last And Always,
