The tracks are the same for all releases.

The Sisterhood is not the The Sisters of Mercy.

Some of the events that inspired some of the album's songs include the Chernobyl disaster, Cold War, and the band's breakup. The band chose not to embark on a tour to support the album, but despite this, Floodland and its singles had a positive commercial performance. This solo album which was finally titled Gift was released in July 1986, again under the Sisterhood moniker. It was recorded at Fairview Studios in Willerby, Hull. Eldritch did not sing on the album for contractual reasons.

I believe this entry is actually the same as this release: https://www.discogs.com/The-Sisterhood-Gift/release/8514270
Steep
This: https://www.discogs.com/The-Sisterhood-Gift/release/8514270 and this: https://www.discogs.com/The-Sisterhood-Gift/release/10247837appear to be the same release.
Gandree
there is also a CD version with these references from 1993
Alien
Think this is same as this one : r159807 may need a merge vote
Shaktit
As raimi73 remarked, it is not the same. Just as stated in the info.
Bundis
Guess it is not the same. See remark: "This version does not have "Made in Austria" on the back cover unlike all other releases."
Jozrone
Actually says "Made in Austria" on the digipack. (not Australia)

This LP was rush-released By A. Eldritch right after the break-up of The Sisters of Mercy. After the acrimonious split, Eldritch did not want the other remaining members of the band to use the name "The Sisterhood." So, Andrew Eldritch put this collection of material together, and rush-released it so he could copyright the name "The Sisterhood," thereby ensuring that no-one, least of all his former bandmates, could legally release any material under that name.(That being said: It's not a half-bad record.)

Produced by Andrew Eldritch; also note that "Gift" in German means "Poison"... The introduction to "Jihad" consists of the numbers "Two-Five-Zero-Zero-Zero". This is the amount of money (in sterling...) Hussey had to pay Eldritch after he sued for using the name "Sisterhood" with the pre-Mission name Hussey was using to tour with... The relationship between RCA and Eldritch was just as bad as the relationship between Eldritch and Hussey. Going from memory, I believe both were still signed to RCA. Either way, RCA was benefitting from the press coverage. I have read and heard that Eldritch deliberately made his album rubbish so that he would be released from his contract (cf Lou Reed). Despite the fact that I don't think the album was rubbish and the unlikelihood of Eldritch releasing a substandard record, it does reinforce the idea that Eldritch was not pleased with RCA. Obviously, the album is a clear attack on the Mission/Sisterhood but it is as much an attack on the record company for exploiting the situation. It is interesting to note that Dominion and Torch weren't included on Gift, even though they were written at the time.
SupperDom
I think you may be mistaken. I seem to recall Andrew Eldritch giving an interview where he said that Vision Thing was the record he made to try and force the record company to drop him. WEA if memory serves.
