“Solid Wood” was released by Columbia on CD and cassette in the UK and across Europe. The B-side on the cassette edition was “Blue”, a non-album track which was written about Moyet’s love of Southend United F. C. . In the UK, two different CD versions were released, with CD1 also featuring the same tracks as the main European release. In addition to “Blue”, “Ode to Boy”, taken from the Essex album was included, along with a live version of “There Are Worse Things I Could Do”. For the UK CD2 version, the third and fourth tracks were “Whispering Your Name”, also from Essex, and “First Time (Are You Sure It’s Your. . . . . . )”, a remix of “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” by Mark Saunders.
