The liner notes claim that Disc one (Black) was recorded in Amsterdam, New York City, Trondheim, Prague, Brussels and Atlanta in 1997 but this is not completely true. All songs besides "Blood on yr Hands" come from the show at the Paradiso, Amsterdam, March 13, 1997. "The Man With the Silver Tongue" was also perfomed in Amsterdam but was omitted from the cd (the original sounboard recording of the Amsterdan show is available at www.swans.pair.com - cd 054a). During the 1997 another song "My Birth" was played quite often but was also omitted from the cd.

The liner notes claim that disc two (white) was recorded in Norway on the band's 1995 tour, but this performance is actually the concert at Paradiso, Amsterdam, August 29, 1995. The songs "In", "Alcohol the Seed", and "Animus", that had been played during the tour and also for the Amsterdam concert, did not appear on Swans Are Dead (the concert has been recorded by the radio station VPRO, Animus is also cut on that recording. The original sounboard recording of the Amsterdan show is available at www.swans.pair.com - cd 052d)
