It was not included on the original CD due to lack of space. Klaus Krieger played drums on this album. A new version was released on CD in January 2005 which was remastered and partially re-recorded ('Tangentised'), see below for cover. This version does not contain all the tracks on the original LP either, 'Children's Deeper Study' is missing, as well as the end part of 'Golgatha and the Circle Closes'. It is also stated on the cover that this album was recorded in 1979 which is false. Track times also differ from the original versions.
