In 1984, the Church signed to Warner Bros. in the United States, which was interested in releasing the band's most recent material. Rather than simply put out the Persia and Remote Luxury EPs, the label decided to repackage them as one album. Along with reshuffling the tracks to give them some semblance of cohesiveness, Warner Bros. decided to release "Constant In Opal" as a U.S. single. The version of "No Explanation" has a 20-second instrumental jam tagged on to the front of it, apparently recorded separately from the original. The album was released on CD by Arista Records in 1990, but has since been deleted.
