Remission & Bites is a compilation by Skinny Puppy released on Play It Again Sam in 1987.[1] The release of this compilation coincides with that of Bites and Remission and contains many of the same songs, albeit in a different context. This release is, to date, the only CD pressing of Skinny Puppy's first two albums in their original form. Indeed, while the audio is free of any song-splicing or bonus tracks, the inserts unfortunately contain a number of shortcomings (see the "Notes" section below for more info).

Notes[edit]

  • The track listing in the liner notes is shown with the songs from Remission on one page and those from Bites on the opposite page, neither of which are numbered.
  • The cover art for both albums is displayed above their respective track listings, but with tint errors; the Remission cover appears as black and white and the smaller fossil picture on the Bites cover appears as bright yellow.
  • The songs "...Brap" and "Dead Lines" are incorrectly listed on both the disc and liner notes as "Brap" and "Deadline".
  • No credits of any kind appear in the liner notes, except for that of the sleeve design, which is credited to "Barbery".[1]
