On this page, I've recorded most of the discography changes along the way for the last several years. Before mid-1998, I didn't keep track of them. Generally, whole numbers indicate complete re-workings of the discography in design or layout. Decimals indicate the addition of one or more discography items. Letters indicate corrections or the addition of information to items already listed.
