NOTES:
Vinyl edition of Mo’ Width issued with an anti-static inner-sleeve and alternate rear artwork. This was only released as a stand-alone album in Australia.

The vinyl sleeve combines the ‘Thanks’ and ‘guest performers’ lists whereas the CD version details who appears on what track.

Rob K features Rob Kennedy from The Workdogs and was later titled Rob K is President on the 2000 reissue.

This album features three cover versions; There Stands The Glass (Webb Pierce), Beat of The Traps (Teri Rodd & MSR Singers) and Ole Man Trouble (Otis Redding).

On 13 March 2000 Mute Records reissued expanded versions of Orange, Experimental Remixes and Extra Width. The complete Mo’ Width album was included on the 22 track Extra Width / Mo’ Width release and on 10 August 2010 Shout Factory released a double CD, 46 track edition of Extra Width + Mo’ Width with bonus tracks.
