Don't Let's Start is a collection of single and EP tracks, released in 1989 in the UK and West Germany. It contains all the B-sides from the Pink and Lincoln eras, plus the single mixes of "Don't Let's Start" and "(She Was A) Hotel Detective", and the previously unreleased "The World's Address (Joshua Fried Remix)". The cover artwork was done by Helene Silverman. It features a photograph of her television screen, which was malfunctioning by displaying unusual colors.

This compilation was released in the US two years later in 1991 with a reordered tracklisting under the title Miscellaneous T, and with the addition of another track: "Hello Radio".
