This is a chronological list in order of release of E.N.'s legitimate recordings: sorry, I have no info on bootlegs/concert recordings to date. Some titles freely translated (where possible) from Deutch by myself, which are enclosed in braces or parentheses following a song or title. Others were provided with translations in the fold-out or on the back of the album; others have no translations at all. Track times are provided where possible. *Credit is due to -Klaus Maeck- for his biography of E.N.: "HOER MIT SCHMERZEN" (Listen With Pain) 80'- 89', used as a source for much of the information contained in this discography, and without which, my own knowledge of E.N. would be small indeed. The country of origin codes are as follows: (GR) Germany (UK) United Kingdom (US) USA (JA) Japan (FR) France (NL) Netherlands *(SKAN) This is given in the book cited above. I have no idea what it means. *Note: Many works listed below were provided with no information as to their origin, sorry.
