Tracks on Wax 4 is a 1978 album by Dave Edmunds. The record was the first Edmunds solo effort to feature all four members of the band Rockpile: Edmunds, Billy Bremner (who also wrote two of the album's songs under the pen name Billy Murray), Nick Lowe, and Terry Williams.

The album's eighth song, "Thread Your Needle", is sometimes incorrectly attributed as having originally been performed by the 1960s surf music duo Jan and Dean; the song was actually originated by the Ohio-based R&B duo Dean and Jean (Welton Young and Brenda Lee Jones).

The album's final song, "Heart Of The City", was originally recorded by Nick Lowe as a Stiff Records single in 1976. A live version performed by Rockpile was released on Lowe's album Jesus of Cool (also 1978) and Edmunds used the same backing track, but overdubbed his own lead vocals in place of Lowe's.

Tracks on Wax 4 is the first official Rockpile collaboration and its hard-driving, unified sounds make it one of Dave Edmunds' very best records. Like Get It, Tracks on Wax 4 relies primarily on originals and contemporary pub rock songs, leaving behind the classic oldies; the older songs on the record are obscurities like Chuck Berry's "It's My Own Business" and Jan & Dean's "Thread Your Needle." Built on such fine songs as the rockabilly tinged "Trouble Boys," the Everly-esque "Never Been in Love," "Television," "Readers Wives," and "Deborah," Tracks on Wax 4 is a tight, snappy rock & roll record that is only derailed by a version of Nick Lowe's classic "Heart of the City," where Lowe's original vocal is stripped away and replaced by a new take by Edmunds. Only then does the record recall Edmunds' perfectionist nature.
