The first album that The Sisters of Mercy released was First and Last and Always in 1985.

Some Girls Wander by Mistake collects singles and EPs from before that. It was released in 1992 (after the band was pretty much dead), so it is the Sisters of Mercy's earliest work on official release, but is not their earliest album. IMHO it is some of their finest music.

The track listing is as follows:

  1. Alice
  2. Floorshow
  3. Phantom
  4. 1969
  5. Kiss the carpet
  6. Lights
  7. Valentine
  8. Fix
  9. Burn
  10. Kiss the carpet (reprise)
  11. Temple of love (extended version)
  12. Heartland
  13. Gimme Shelter
  14. The damage done
  15. Watch
  16. Home of the hit-men
  17. Body electric
  18. Adrenchrome
  19. Anaconda

The title is from Teachers, which like the song The Sisters of Mercy is by Leonard Cohen.

Unfortunately it does not contain their mind-boggling early cover of Dolly Parton's Jolene, but does contain good covers of The Rolling Stones' Gimme Shelter and The Stooges' 1969.
