Here's a list of the recordings released in the USA and their run times and release year. I have no idea why the run times of the vinyl aren't the same as the CD times. The timings for the LPs were calculated by adding up the run time of each individual song; the CD times come off the Discman® display.

Please note: Neither the Hindu Love Gods or any tribute albums have been included in this. There are other “singles” of European issue for which we do not have any information.

Much of this information comes from the October 15, 2004 issue Goldmine Magazine. Thanks to Vicki for providing it.


12” ALBUMS:

?? 1970 Wanted Dead Or Alive - Imperial LP-12456
37:45 1976 Warren Zevon - Asylum 7E-1060
31:29 1978 Excitable Boy - Asylum 6E-118
35:57 1980 Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School - Asylum 5E-509
27:32 1979 Wanted Dead Or Alive (w/o "Fiery Emblems") (reissue) - Pickwick SPC-3715
40:36 1980 Stand in the Fire - Asylum 5E-519

Q: I found a record called Off The Wall by Smokestack Lightnin'. It says "Sandy Zevon" is playing guitar and possibly keyboard. Is this Warren?

A: Yes. In the 1995 Goldmine interview, WZ said, "I had a nickname from my surfer days, which was ‘Sandy.' But then, I had a cousin, Sandy Zevon, who's a surgeon. It's quite true."


Q: Are there other records not his own on which WZ appears?

A: Yes. In spite of the following story, there's a surprising number of recordings with WZ on them.
From a 1995 interview with Gerrie Lim:
GL: You're not known to guest on other people's records. Why is that?

WZ: No one ever asks.

GL: Well, I'll print this so maybe you'll get asked.

WZ: Someone said that to me in the course of an interview years ago in response to my response. And still, no one asks. (We both laugh) I guess I'm perceived as somebody who plays his own songs and that's it. Perhaps it's true.

But Mr. Zevon appears on:
Michael Wolff's Christmas Moods
Billy Bob Thornton's The Edge of the World
Deadicated - a Tribute to the Grateful Dead
The Odds' Bedbugs
Don Henley's I Can't Stand Still
Phil Ochs' Pleasures of the Harbor
The Everly Brothers' Home Again and Stories We Could Tell
Phil Everly's Mystic Line and Star Spangled Springer
The Turtles' Solid Zinc
Smokestack Lightnin's Off the Wall (as Sandy Zevon)
Kerouac's Kicks Joy Darkness


Mr. Zevon also appears on a double disc set that was an outgrowth of the Rock Bottom Remainders. It's called Stranger Than Fiction by "the Wrockers." WZ wrote the liner notes.

He plays guitar on Dave Barry's "Tupperware Blues" (Dave even says, "Go get 'em, Warren" to introduce the solo), keyboard on Stephen King's "Stand By Me" and he sings the "Ike" part on Tananrive Due's "Proud Mary" - who knew his voice could get THAT low?

The double disc set, contrary to public opinion, is NOT out of print and may be purchased at least through Amazon:

(Thanks to Vicki for the link)

When it was first announced that Wanted Dead Or Alive was to be re-issued, the announcement said the disc would also contain a "lost" album of WZ's called A Leaf In The Wind. When WDOA was re-issued, there was no "Leaf In the Wind" attached to it, nor was there any other bonus material.

When asked, in November 2003, Jordan responded with:

A Leaf in the Wind was a bullshit mix of old demos that the label never got permission to release. It was stuff from the 60s that really wasn't worthy of being released.

Sorry to say, but that one will NEVER see the light of day. This is Father/Son promiseville stuff.
