All music material on Mystery Tracks has been previously released on official recordings, thus it can be regarded a pirate release rather than a bootleg. The CD contains all TD tracks from the (in 1993) ultra-rare soundtrack album Flashpoint (1984) of which only a few playing CDs were circulating among fans making them extreme expensive collector's items. But only two years after release of Mystery Tracks the soundtrack album was officialy re-released by CEMA Special Markets. Besides the nine tracks from the soundtrack album (the non-TD title track was left out), Mystery Tracks includes the original composition from Quinoa (1992), another very rare item at that time, as this album had been limited to 1,000 copies only. In 1998, Quinoa has been re-released officially including two bonus tracks. The four other compositions on Mystery Tracks originate from the official releases Dr. Destructo/Diamond Diary (1981), I Just Want To Rule My Own Life Without You (1991) and Rumpelstiltskin (1992).


The booklet back side shows Edgar Froese, Chris Franke and Paul Haslinger during the 1986 USA tour, ignoring that none of the music on this CD was played by this line-up. The CD itself is titled Collected Tunes instead of Mystery Tracks and has been seen in orange colour with violet writing and vice versa.
