Notes

Originally released on CD by Third Mind/Roadrunner Records in 1991, Tanith and the Lion Tree had always been intended for release on vinyl, but the label saw no future in vinyl and decided against the release. It remained a CD only release until this 2xLP reissue in 2002.

The first LP contains all the tracks originally meant for the vinyl release, with the second LP containing the original "CD bonus tracks" (Phoney War and Old Man Trouble), as well as three brand new, previously unreleased bonus tracks. The entire album has been remastered and mildly re-worked by Edward Ka-Spel himself to better suit the vinyl format.

A hand-numbered test pressing edition of 14 copies on 220g black vinyl was made on May 10th, 2002. These copies were given to friends of the label and artist, and were packaged in a hand-made gatefold sleeve joined together with red ribbon, including a small picture of the cover art for the release, as well as a tracklist glued to the inner part of the gatefold.

All copies include a postcard featuring a photo of a cat named Morbad the Avenger.
