26 Songs was released in March 11, 2003 on Ipecac Recordings.

Variations have been released as Six Songs (1986, vinyl), Eight Songs (1991, vinyl), 10 Songs (1991, CD) and 26 Songs (2003, CD). The songs are taken from two sessions in 1986.


Tracks 1-10 are taken from the 1991 Eight Songs/10 Songs LP/CD version rerelease of this album.

Tracks 11-16 are taken from the original Six Songs vinyl release.

Tracks 17-19 were taken from the 1986 Outtakes from 1st 7" vinyl single.

"Ever Since My Accident" is available on the Kill Rock Stars compilation (KRS-201) in superior quality.


The tracklisting on the booklet of the CD lists 26 tracks but for unknown reasons the CD only has 25 tracks as "Ever Since My Accident" and "Hugh" are together on track 25 and not individual tracks as credited.
