Auntie Aubrey's Excursions Beyond the Call of Duty is a remix compilation by The Orb originally released in the UK in 1996 as a mono, limited edition 2-CD/4-LP/2-cassette set. The running order varied slightly between the different formats and there were several discrepancies between the actual tracks and those noted on the sleeves. The CD tracklisting is reproduced below. It was re-released five years later in the UK and US, with an amended track listing and some in stereo, as a 2-CD set. Its sequel, Auntie Aubrey's Excursions Beyond the Call of Duty Part 2 appeared at the same time.

The original release had Depeche Mode's "Happiest Girl", Erasure's "Ship of Fools", Primal Scream's "Higher Than the Sun", and Lovekittens' "What Goes On". These were later substituted for David A. Stewart and Candy Dulfer's "Lily Was Here", and Marathon's "Movin".
