Notes

Winner of the 1995 Mercury Music Prize.
Following the initial issue, there were Australian, American & Euro releases with an additional track "It's A Fire" inserted between "Wandering Star" & "Numb" [e.g. 828 553 vs the earlier 828 522 issues]. On vinyl, "It's A Fire" is listed as an additional track only on the Greek edition of the album. Some later issues also include the remix "Sour Sour Times" plus the "To Kill A Dead Man" track (from the film which led to Portishead's record contract and the cover image used on "Dummy").
For "Glory Box", most booklets claim Isaac Hayes' "Ikes Rap III" as sample source, but actually it's a sample from "Ikes Rap II" that is used (the same sample Tricky used on "Hell Is Round the Corner").

Track 2 contains samples from Lalo Schifrin's "Danube Incident" a percussion sample from Smokey Brooks' "Spin-It Jig".
Track 3 contains samples Weather Report's "Elegant People".
Track 5 contains samples from Eric Burdon & War's "Magic Mountain"
Track 9 contains samples from Johnnie Ray's "I'll Never Fall In Love Again"
Track 10 contains samples from Isaac Hayes' "Ike's Rap II".
