Re-issues[edit]

The album has been re-issued on vinyl once (1986, Cocteau Records), and on CD on three separate occasions (1989 Enigma Records, 1999 EMI, and 2012 EMI).

The 2012 remastered edition was issued by EMI (using the 1999 remaster), including new liner notes, and containing a selection of photos from the time period. Although overall the sound quality is an improvement over the previous CD issues, the "Stay Young" on this edition suffers from a what appears to be a ‘drop out’ introduced in the remastering process. The 2012 reissue was deleted in 2014 and is currently out of print as a physical CD, but is still available as a digital download from major online retailers.[3]

The following bonus tracks were included:

Furniture Music B-sides[edit]
