THE SISTERS OF MERCY / Some Girls Wander by Mistake (1992)

Some Girls Wander is a compilation album but it's not a Best Of..., that would come the following year (see HERE). It's a collection of the almost impossible to find and even harder to afford early Sisters vinyl releases from 1980 to 1983.
The striped-down sound can seem cavernous and muddy to non-fans, and admittedly Doktor Avalanche sounds primitive, but for Sisters lovers it's a genuine goldmine of classic era output, and a history lesson in atmospheric minimalism.

Songs of Note: Alice; Temple of Love
