Whirlpool is the debut album by British shoegazing band Chapterhouse. The album was reissued on 6 June 2006, on the label Cherry Red, with seven bonus tracks taken from three EPs (Freefall, Sunburst, and Pearl) released in the same time frame as the album. The Cherry Red reissue also included, for the first time, lyrics to all of the songs.[4] The album spent 3 weeks in the UK Album chart in 1991, peaking at number 23.

The initial and subsequent runs of the Cherry Red CD were pressed using a lossy master source for tracks 1-9, 13 and 14. The corrected version has the reference TC2159 printed on the inner CD ring.[5]

As of 2015, this was still the case, with Cherry Red reported as continuing to send out versions of the CD – now bearing the reference CDMRED304V2, which were sourced from the lossy master, rather than the DAT for tracks 1 to 9, 13 and 14.
