Hi All :)




What is the earliest recording with "Sisters of Mercy" live and does it circulate?




Thank you All :)

I don't know if it is the earliest live recording, but a very early recording of that song is live from the BBC in 1968 (it was recorded live in the Spring of 1968), which is readily available -- on youtube, for one.

Hi

The earliest recording (but not a live recording) of Sisters Of Mercy probably comes from the 1967 Studio Recordings:

Sisters Of Mercy (Take 1) (5 June Session 1967)

Alas, this recording is not in circulation...
