The deluxe edition includes a bonus disc of seven-inch edits, dub mixes and twelve inch versions and like Present Arms includes a CD of BBC live sessions. The full track listings can be viewed below.

Both albums are also available as two-LP 180g vinyl setsPresent Arms includes Present Arms In Dub on the second vinyl record while Labour of Love repeats the edits/remixes bonus disc on the second LP (minus the live version of Food For Thought).
