NOTES:
Presumably the initial CD pressing without the “MADE BY PMI” text in the matrix.

Mo’ Width was only issued in Australia on vinyl and CD with black or pink (as above) cover text. This version was issued in DigiPak with black tray and consists of out-takes and alternate recordings from the time of Extra Width.

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.
