Bless you PIAS for humouring me in my obsession.

'Laugh China Doll' was recorded, mixed and mastered in a small damp room in London within the space of four days in Autumn 1984. It quickly disappeared - not just the 2000 copies of the record, but also the master tapes and the record company.
The tapes were eventually tracked down four year later. They have been lying in a garden shed: the notorious winters of 1985 and 1986 had turned them into a demagnetized stew. Consequently, what you hold in your hands is the result of collecting several good quality copies of the original pressing in the classic tradition of the professional bootlegger. The only significant difference to the original version is the inclusion of a live version of 'Suicide Pact' (Vienna 1988), because this track was originally cursed with a pressing blemish.

Sing while you may - prepare thyself for 'The Crushed Velvet Apocalypse'

Made in Holland

Limited to 2000 copies according to the official The Legendary Pink Dots website
