The Fine Print

Please do not ask me where to find rare recordings, bootlegs, videos, or other releases listed in this discography.  Please do not ask me where you can get scans of artwork for these releases.  This discography is a list of releases that have been made available over time, not a list of my personal collection.  Just because any given release is listed in this discography does not mean that I own that release, nor does it indicate that I am willing to trade, sell, or make tape copies of that or any other release.  If you are looking for such recordings, try attending record shows, reading collector magazines, and hunting in used record shoppes.

While the existence of unauthorized recordings may be documented herein, I cannot advise on the legality of such recordings, nor can I advise where such recordings can be obtained.

All singles and EPs have a picture sleeve (p/s) unless otherwise noted.  Unless otherwise noted, CDs come in a standard jewel-box and CD-singles come in a slim-line jewel-box.  An “obi” is the paper strip (literally, the “sash”) that comes wrapped around most Japanese LPs and CDs.

Song authorship is denoted by names enclosed in braces, e.g., “{Blegvad/Moore}”.  Where possible, the name of the lyricist appears first.

Information flagged with a question mark has not been verified (a guess, a rumour).  If you have further information about these or other related releases or if you can supply missing artwork, please write me.

Many CD track times were found using my compact disc player and the time indicated on your CD player may vary slightly (± 1-3 seconds), due to the way different machines calculate track times.
