    Songs from albums: A Thousand Leaves 9 SYR2 1 SYR1 1
    Note: We enter a hazy area in 1997. Although songs like "Sunday" and "Ineffable Me" were released, it wasn't in their best known "A Thousand Leaves" versions. So while I've chosen to refer to them as A Thousand Leaves tracks, I don't consider them "unreleased".

    Also, Female Mechanic (then known as Static Overview) was broadcast (along with Ineffable Me -- then Proud Marie -- and Stil) on the PBS "Sessions at West 54th St." TV Special, though I wouldn't consider this a 'release'. Same goes for Wildflower's inclusion on the Tibetan Freedom Concert compilation.

Since many set lists are either missing or incomplete, and not all concert dates are available, it's impossible to offer 100% accuracy, but this is as close as the site can come w/ the information available. Your help to make the site more complete would be greatly appreciated. Contact Chris Lawrence with any info you have.
