Paul Haig : Les Disques du Crépuscule tapes

Well yesterday was once more Cassette Store Day. Not nearly as big as event as Record Store Day has become but one than seems to be gaining impetus as the format (doomed to disappear completely) makes a (sort of) comeback. Anyhow, I didn't pick up any tapes myself but was glad to receive the above pic which Postcard aficionado, Graeme McNay sent me. I don't recall ever having seen a Paul Haig tape but Graeme has managed to acquire two of them.
The 5-track 'The Only Truth' tape was released on Island/Les Disques Du Crépuscule in 1984; whereas the 'Warp of Pure Fun' tape, which appears to be pretty rare (it isn't listed at Discogs), was released apparently only in Belgium in late 1985 at the same time as the vinyl version.

Wouldn't mind at all if the recently revived Les Disques du Crépuscule reissued these tapes.
