On the Carol Has a Moustache CD, the original "General Expressions" has been relegated to an "extra track", and a 1999 reconstruction by Mingo appears in its stead.

German instruction: Langenscheidt Language for Travelers "German quick & easy", cassette, 1984
Music: Andy Summers & Robert Fripp, selections played backwards from "I Advance Masked", cassette, 1982
