Song Origins[edit]

"Amethyst Deceivers" was originally released on the single Autumn Equinox: Amethyst Deceivers. "The Lost Rivers Of London" was previously released on Unnatural History III as "Lost Rivers Of London". The song was originally released on the compilation Succour - Terrascope Benefit Album. In 1996, the song was remade and released as "London's Lost Rivers" on the Black Light District album A Thousand Lights In A Darkened Room. "Are You Shivering?" and "The Dreamer Is Still Asleep" were originally released on Musick To Play In The Dark Vol. 1. "Ostia (The Death Of Pasolini)" was originally released on Horse Rotorvator. "Where Are You?" and "Batwings (A Limnal Hymn)" were originally released on Musick To Play In The Dark Vol. 2. However, "Batwings (A Limnal Hymn)" is exclusive, the difference between the two is that the MTPID2 version is 11:32 long with music, while the shorter version that appears on this compilation, has an opening of a sound resembling a truck driving on a road. "At The Heart Of It All", "Panic", "The Anal Staircase" and "Solar Lodge" were originally released on Scatology. This version of "A Cold Cell" is exclusive to this compilation. A similar version was released on the compilation The Wire Tapper 6 with a track timing of 6:24. The song was later reworked and released as "Cold Cell" on The Ape Of Naples. "Who'll Fall?" was originally released on Stolen & Contaminated Songs. "First Dark Ride" was originally released on the 12" Nasa Arab as Coil vs. The Eskaton. The song was later released on Unnatural History III. "Further Back And Faster" was originally released on Love's Secret Domain. "Red Skeletons" and "Blue Rats" were originally released on A Thousand Lights In A Darkened Room as Black Light District. "Scope" was originally released on Wrong Eye/Scope and later released on Unnatural History III. "A.Y.O.R." was previously available in a slightly longer form on the bootleg Backwards. The song was later remade as "It's In My Blood" and released on The Ape Of Naples. "The First Five Minutes After Death" is incorrectly labeled "The First Five Minutes After Violent Death". "The First Five Minutes After Death" originally appeared on Horse Rotorvator and has a track timing of 4:45, while "The First Five Minutes After Violent Death" originally appeared on Gold Is The Metal With The Broadest Shoulders with a track timing of 2:43 due to a sequencing error, although the remastered/revised version is 5:00.
