|Psychic TV chronology|
The album spawned the single "Just Drifting".
It was issued on CD by Cleopatra Records with a different cover, bonus tracks taken from the "Just Drifting" 12" (the 7" b-side was not included) and the bonus 12" from the "Dreams Less Sweet" album, but missing all of the "Themes" LP. The sound quality was very poor and some tracks were remixed. A later reissue by Some Bizzare spread the same material (with the same audio) over two discs. A 2CD set of the complete original 2LP set was issued by WEA Japan.
The "Themes" LP has been issued on CD separately, first by Syard Records under the title "Cold Dark Matter" remixed from the original master tapes and with an extra 3-minute spoken word coda added, then by Cleopatra Records under the title "Themes Part One", mastered from an extremely noisy vinyl source, then by Syard Records yet again, with a new cover and liner notes (identical audio to their initial release) and then, most recently, by Cold Spring on their 7CD "Themes" box set, remastered from the original tapes (original mix), but not including the coda from the "Cold Dark Matter" edition.
