CD1 was originally released as CDr format only in May 2002 [sleeve notes erroneously mention "2004"] as ‘The remote viewer’ in an edition of 500 copies, to coincide with Coil's tour of Europe. The album was later re-edited by Peter Christopherson and expanded to include a second CD of two new tracks. This second edition was released on the same day as the expanded version of ‘Black Antlers’. Both remasters were printed in Thailand and feature high quality images and packaging.
It is noted that CD2 "was created in 2006 using original materials." − two pictures of goat horns comprise the extra artwork for this second edition; these photographs are credited to Ian Johnstone

The catalogue number for this release is THBKK 1, which may stand for 'Threshold House Bangkok'

My car stereo wouldn't take the Minimax second disc and am wondering if that's typical for this format to lack the compatibility for it? It's the sole one in my collection and honestly hadn't even heard of it until now so any insight is appreciated.

An amazing album in every respect. Challenging yet accessible; abrasive yet beautiful; this is a record which really does satisfy all of the emotional states. It also sounds much nicer remastered and more than deserves to finally get an official release. Truly exceptional.
