Musick to Play in the Dark Vol. 1 is a CD in its third pressing, as well as a 12" vinyl, by Coil.

Musick to Play in the Dark Vol. 1 was one of two albums attributed purely to a style called "moon music", which signified their change from a "solar" to a "moon" group.[1] Musick to Play in the Dark Vol. 2 is the sequel album.

The initial CD pressing was limited to 2,000 copies. Approximately 1,000 of those copies that were ordered directly from Coil include a certificate of provenance, numbered and signed by Peter and John.[citation needed]

The 12" version of this record features "edited" versions of the songs as they appear on the CD. It was released on translucent white vinyl in an edition of 500. "FOR YVES TANGUY" is etched in side A of the vinyl. "IT'S JUST A PHASE WE'RE GOING THROUGH" is etched on side B.
