Current 93 - Dawn [2002 Reissue]

The liner notes read:
Dawn was originally released in 1985 as an LP on Maldoror (MAL 093). When it was reissued as one of the first Current 93 CDs by Durtro in 1989, an alternate version of 'Great Black Time' to that featured on the vinyl was mistakenly used. The master tape for the original song used on the vinyl has long since been lost. Consequently, it has been necessary for it to be transferred from a vinyl copy. Track 1 represents the CD version, track 3 the vinyl version. The version of 'Maldoror Est Mort' was first released on the Mi-Mort cassette jointly shared by Current 93 and Nurse With Wound, and represented the earliest recording of that track. 'A Day In Dogland' originally appeared on the LAYLAH compilation album, The Fight Is On and was recorded shortly after Dogs Blood Rising. 'Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus' was recorded during the Nature Unveiled sessions.

Current 93 at that time were composed of the following individuals: David Tibet, Steven Stapleton, John Fothergill, Annie Anxiety, John Balance, Douglas P., Rose McDowall, John Murphy, Roger Smith, Nick Rogers. They may or may not be present on these recordings. The photographs of David Tibet and John Balance were taken by an unknown photographer at Current 93's performance at the 100 Club, London on April 23, 1985. Thanks to Paul Jackson at Othila.
