CDs - There are four Instant Automatons CDs currently available. The first is an anthology which contains all our original recordings that appeared on vinyl during the life of the band (1977-1982), plus other selected cassette tracks and a few previously unreleased items. The second is a collection of live performances, most of which have never been released before. The third is a 2-disc set consisting of digitally remastered versions of the cassette albums Blues Masters of the Humber Delta and Tape Transport, along with a number of bonus tracks. The fourth is a commercially-pressed anthology released on the US-based Hyped To Death label. It contains a large proportion of alternative versions and previously unreleased material.
