Title: King Diamond – The Complete Roadrunner Collection 1986-1990 (The Lake?)
Post by: TheUnborn on July 02, 2016, 05:52:31 pm
Just a small issue concerning the box of the 5 first KD albums from Roadrunner that was released in 2014.
Why on earth did they not include The Lake on the Fatal Portrait CD? It's a bonus track, I know, but still. I'd think Roadrunner had the rights for that song as well.

Seems strange.

Because Roadrunner records suck these days.
They do not care about their reissues. 
All they care about is money.

Often wrong pictures, bad looking artwork (vinyl reissues) or in this case, leaving a song of the cd.

If i am not mistake King and the band wrote The lake sometime during 1986-87  while working on Abigail .  The reason i believe it did not appear on the album was that it simply did not fit the concept.   However i do know it was released on a 4 track album entitled The dark sides.

Which went on to include Halloween The Shrine The Lake great song by the way and No presents for Christmas ..

It was a left over track from the Fatal Portrait sessions and also on the B-side from the Halloween picture disc.
Side A: Halloween
Side B: The Candle and The Lake.

A great item to have.   :diabo_do_msn:

Excellent i remember hearing the lake for the first time on a cassette tape 4 tracks entitled the Dark sides which i obtained from Vintage vinyl in New jersey if i remember correct that was the place to go for all the best metal and it was probably around late 86 early 87 i bought that cassette probably the reason i thought the tracks were from the Abigail recordings.

They released that EP between Them and Conspiracy in 1988.  I remember my friend bought it for me on his lunch break  from high school and brought it to me in my woodshop class.  I was so excited.

Yes that is correct you will have to forgive me it has been a very long time i dug the Darksides Ep out of my cassette box and it is in fact dated 1988.   It is strange i could have swore i listened to it during 1987 but the cassette and looking at the official release date have confirmed 1988 to be correct date 11/01/88 was the official release date.
