I suppose it's about time I completed a discography of our subjects for archival purposes, but as this is DRL I couldn't simply give you as unimaginative and bare a post as that! So I came across an apt quote from the composer Aaron Copland for you to consider in case you find yourselves marvelling at the 'why’s' this discography might bring up in you.

I will be updating this post as and when new releases appear, if I've missed anything let me know. As you'll see I've designed it as a simple 'at a glance' guide to all their related releases to date, if you want catalogue numbers, personnel details, track listings etc I would recommend going to the relevant entries at Discogs.

"The serious composer when he thinks about his art will sooner or later have occasion to ask himself: why is it so important to my own psyche that I compose music? What makes it seem so absolutely necessary, so that every other daily activity, by comparison, is of lesser significance? And why is the creative impulse never satisfied; why must one always begin anew? To the first question - the need to create - the answer is always the same - self-expression; the basic need to make evident one's deepest feelings about life. But why is the job never done? Why must one always begin again? The reason for the compulsion to renewed creativity, it seems to me, is that each added work brings with it an element of self-discovery. I must create in order to know myself, and since self-knowledge is a never-ending search, each new work is only a part-answer to the question 'Who am I?' and brings with it the need to go on to other and different part-answers."
Aaron Copland

There I go again ‘reading too much into it’ as usual but if we are to go beyond our subject the research and thinking must be of this nature. If you want to keep an open mind in the hope of going forward I hope you’ll continue to support my efforts. Those ‘part-answers’ to date are as follows. Updated 2010.

I wonder whether / when you (as the authority) will officially acknowledge "the Tuss" as a Gerald Donald side project (in cooperation with Richard James)?? myspace links to Black Replica and audio clues make one wonder. . .
