John Henry + Factory Showroom is a compilation album, released in December 2013 in the UK. It is a two-disc set, featuring the band's fifth and sixth albums, John Henry and Factory Showroom — their final two Elektra albums. The compilation also includes various B-side tracks that were released on the albums' accompanying singles.

John Henry + Factory Showroom was released alongside Flood + Apollo 18, which collects the band's earlier Elektra albums. Together, the set comprises TMBG's full Elektra album catalog.

Unlike the original release of Factory Showroom, "Token Back To Brooklyn" appears here as track 1 on the album, rather than as a hidden track 0.
