Ten Notes on a Summer's Day is Crass's final album under the Crass name. It was released in 1986 and consists of a vocal and instrumental version of the same tracks in an avant-garde musical style.

The album was remastered and re-released as the sixth and final part of the Crassical Collection in April 2012.[5] The version of track 1 on the Crassical Collection CD has the opening notes from the instrumental version dubbed over the "What happened to Crass?" speech at the beginning of the vocal mix. The vocal mix also seamlessly fades into the Instrumental mix.
