Body To Body, Job To Job is a compilation album by the American no wave/noise rock band Swans. It was released simultaneously on LP, CD and audio cassette in 1991. It presents various live recordings, tape loops and previously unavailable material from the years 1982-1985. While the CD and audio cassette contained 16 songs, the LP version – due to the limited length of the medium – omitted 4 songs: "Whore", "Loop 21", "Get Out" and "Mother, My Body Disgusts Me".

Notes: "Whore" was originally released on the album Cop in 1984 as "Butcher"; the disparity indicates that the song's title may have been taken from an early setlist. "Your Game" is an early version of the song "Your Property," which originally appeared on Cop as well; the lyric at this time was a spoken word piece titled "Your Game" that was later collected in Gira's book The Consumer. "Mother, My Body Disgusts Me" is an early version of the title track from Greed, with different lyrics.
