Notes

Originally released as "Metal Box" in 1979 by Virgin Records (containing three 12" 45rpm records), it was deleted from the catalogue on 23 November 1979 after an initial release of 60,000 units, then re-issued on 22 February 1980 as "Second Edition", a double LP packaged in a more conventional gatefold.

Later covered in its entirety as Jah Wobble - Metal Box - Rebuilt in Dub (2021)
