It is interesting to note that Dominion and Torch weren't included on Gift, even though they were written at the time. Reply See 1 reply Notify me 9 Helpful.

This: and this: to be the same release.
Produced by Andrew Eldritch; also note that "Gift" in German means "Poison"... The introduction to "Jihad" consists of the numbers "Two-Five-Zero-Zero-Zero". This is the amount of money (in sterling...) Hussey had to pay Eldritch after he sued for using the name "Sisterhood" with the pre-Mission name Hussey was using to tour with... The relationship between RCA and Eldritch was just as bad as the relationship between Eldritch and Hussey. Going from memory, I believe both were still signed to RCA. Either way, RCA was benefitting from the press coverage. I have read and heard that Eldritch deliberately made his album rubbish so that he would be released from his contract (cf Lou Reed). Despite the fact that I don't think the album was rubbish and the unlikelihood of Eldritch releasing a substandard record, it does reinforce the idea that Eldritch was not pleased with RCA. Obviously, the album is a clear attack on the Mission/Sisterhood but it is as much an attack on the record company for exploiting the situation. It is interesting to note that Dominion and Torch weren't included on Gift, even though they were written at the time.
I think you may be mistaken. I seem to recall Andrew Eldritch giving an interview where he said that Vision Thing was the record he made to try and force the record company to drop him. WEA if memory serves.
