Sisters Of Mercy - Trans Europe Excess 1985

This is a soundboard recording of the Sisters Of Mercy recorded live at Kolingsborg, Stockholm, Sweden, back on the 17th May 1985, and subsequently released through semi official (or at least loop hole in international law specialist label) KTS Records.

There are a number of recordings from various gigs from the Trans Europe Excess tour in circulation, this one is possibly the most popular as the sound quality does the band justice, and KTS were pretty good at getting hold of soundboard & stereo FM material.

In terms of performance and considering the stresses and strains on the band at this time the performance is spot on, seemingly warming up after the first two or three songs.

This is another KTS (Kiss The Stone - KTS-068) silver CD bootleg that as previously mentioned were released through 'loop holes' in local Italian laws for a few years. As always with KTS releases the sound quality is very good, however as most of the KTS releases were on a single CD the concert is edited to around 60 plus minutes.
