Translucent Flashbacks is a compilation album released in 1995 and combines the first three Spacemen 3 singles and all their B-sides. The singles which were released on Glass Records between 1986 & 1988 are "Walkin' With Jesus", Transparent Radiation EP and "Take Me To The Other Side".

Different versions of many of these tracks can actually be found on The Perfect Prescription album with one track, "Rollercoaster," available on the debut Sound of Confusion album. A version of this album was also released in the US by Taang! records and called Spacemen 3 The Singles; although the album booklet gives no dates for the singles releases and no info on the band, it features what may have been the original artworks for the individual record covers.
