All of the group's albums have been re-issued on CD, except for their debut. In a 2017 interview, Hofstede indicated that their first recording would eventually be re-issued, however, "the problem is it's in somebody else's hands so there are difficulties. Until now we didn't feel it was that important but of course one day it will be there again. It's old stuff but it is part of our history."
