Television - "Fairland"
Television - "New York Stories"
Television - "Portable Electricity" Factory pressed CDR
Television - "Live Adventures"
Television - "This Case Is Closed"
Television - "Live In San Francisco"
Television - "Last Live In Portland Oregon"
Tom Verlaine - "Glory"
Any others that belong on this list?
