Notes

Tracks 15 & 16 are from Bid's sole Él solo single. This isn't credited on the release, nor does it mention that these are bonus tracks not on the original vinyl release from 1983. The 12" version includes a third song, which is available on CD on the Japanese versions of this release.

A later pressing has a CD made in the UK, Mastered by Nimbus, removing "Made in France" from the CD face; also, the art is on a lighterweight stock.

The best record they released during their original incarnation was 1983's Volume, Contrast, Brilliance. a cherry-picked miscellany of singles and radio sessions with a promising Vol. 1 in its subtitle. Its 33-years-later sequel-shockingly, almost as good-is a set of demos recorded between 1978 and 1991. The Monochrome Set has always thrived on combing the discarded past for jewels it's only fair that they should find some in their own. 1 is ranked 86,416th in the overall chart, 10,355th in the 1980s, and 957th in the year 1983. 1 by The Monochrome Set Compilation album Year: 1983 Overall rank: 86,416th.

This is a marvelous compilation of singles and stray tracks, and for those who agree, seek out either of the Japanese issues, and it tacks on 9 (!) bonus tracks, many exclusively on CD.
