2004 re-issue

The album was re-issued on CD in February 2004 by Eclectic Discs. Remastered from the original tapes, the re-issue has three bonus tracks, including both sides of the band's first and only single ("Seven Is a Jolly Good Time/You Are All Princes") and "Movement 3" from "Symphony No. 2", which was omitted from the original LP due to copyright difficulties because its tune bears a similarity to part of Igor Stravinsky's ballet The Rite of Spring. There are also similarities to the final Neptune movement of Gustav Holst's orchestral suite The Planets.

The track listing is as follows:

  1. "Bulb" – 0:09
  2. "While Growing My Hair" – 4:02
  3. "I Will Be Absorbed" – 5:11
  4. "Fugue in D Minor" – 2:49
  5. "They Laughed When I Sat Down at the Piano…" – 1:21
