"Play Dead's "Resurrection" (1984) (the third re-issue of 'From The Promised Land') is their most eclectic and most underrated work. Unfortunately, the track "Weeping Blood (remix)" was not included in this re-release. Only 1,000 copies of the original "From The Promised Land" LP (released in early May 1984) were pressed before the band decided they were dissatisfied with the recordings. They re-recorded each song and mixed in alternate drum beats and some electronics along with a completely new vocal track. The second version of "From The Promised Land" (released in late May 1984) featured a sticker that read "Remix." This third edition released for CD in 1992 features eight extra tracks mixed in with the "From The Promised Land (remix)" tracks. This album is certainly a must-have and the best songs on this album, in my opinion, are "Pale Fire," "Sacrosanct," "Return To The East," "Break," "Torn On Desire," "Sin Of Sins (live)" and "Walk Away." The track "Sin Of Sins (live)" was originally recorded for the live LP "Into The Fire Live" by Play Dead back in 1984/1985. "Sin Of Sins (live)" is the only live track by Play Dead ever released on to CD."
