The Cold Nose is the debut album by Department of Eagles. It has been reissued twice. It was originally released in the US as The Whitey On The Moon UK LP on Isota Records on October 21, 2003, and reissued in the UK as The Cold Nose on Melodic Records on January 8, 2008. The American Dust October 7, 2008 US reissue contains four bonus tracks. The album is sample-heavy and multilayered. The second track, "Sailing By Night," contains a sample of the song "Meetings Along The Edge" from the Philip Glass and Ravi Shankar project Passages, as well as a sample from the Yellow Magic Orchestra track, Rydeen. The third track "Noam Chomsky Spring Break 2002" samples the Regina Spektor song "Prisoners". It also samples Astor Piazzolla's composition "Oblivion" in the opening and closing sequences. The track "We Have to Respect Each Other" samples Shooby Taylor, the human horn, while the opening to "Forty Dollar Rug" samples "Il Teatrino Delle Suore" from Nino Rota's soundtrack to Giulietta Degli Spiriti.
