Tau Ceti - "Radiation" b/w "Bathed in Dark Light" (1985)

This two-song was released on limited edition (900 numbered copies) 12" vinyl by Small Horse Big Apple (SMBA 12-001). The art was customized - the scan above is from Golden Rock's copy, ours here at the CCPS is different. We went on a fact-finding mission to Recordland, and discovered the following specimens:

Mmm, whatever did happen to the forthcoming full-length album? The miracle, apparently, passed.
