Additional notes:

Dark Entries was originally released on the fledgling Axis Records name under parent label Beggars Banquet. It was only one of four singles released before it was discovered that an Axis Records company already existed. Shortly thereafter, Axis Records became 4AD and eventually grew to be the most recognizable namesake of the Beggars Banquet family, becoming the parent label in the early 2000s.

The artwork featured on the sleeve is part of a painting by Paul Delvaux called “Venus Sleeping.” The back of the sleeve features the lyrics to Dark Entries, however, these are not entirely the words Peter ends up singing on the recording. This is the final major reissue of Dark Entries, released circa 1982. It features the then newer white 4AD labels that have nude wrestlers on one side and the 4AD circle logo on the other side.

This release comes only in a card sleeve.
