This 1979 UK album is discussed in Heylin’s book in the “Anarchy In The UK” chapter, stating that “many fans considered Love In A Void superior to [the band’s] debut album The Scream“. “… the truth is that many fans were disappointed by the takes of songs like ‘Carcass’ and ‘Helter Skelter’, preferring the versions heard originally on John Peel’s radio show.”
The band ended up taking legal action against the bootlegger, suing him for damages and winning, states Heylin.
