It is by no means the last word on what has been released by the band. I am a serious collector of Tears For Fears and this document was compiled mainly from a TFF biography, the NME magazine, Goldmine, Record Collector, and through many hours of personal searches at record stores and record collector shows. Currently, I am looking for any bootleg TFF records or videos besides the ones mentioned in the discography. Conversation about the band is welcome and encouraged via e-mail to me at dmay@inslab.uky.edu. I have finally managed to get a TFF mailing list going! If you would like to be a part of this, send your subscription requests to: tears4-fears-request@ms.uky.edu Please send any discography corrections or additions to: dmay@inslab.uky.edu '...we are paid by those who learn by our mistakes' - TFF ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Key to the discography - 7" - seven inch single CD - compact disc 10" - ten inch single CDS - compact disc single 12" - twelve inch single 3CDS - 3" compact disc single EP - extended play single CASS - cassette of album LP - full length album CS - Cassette single * - an asterisk indicates an item in my personal collection Question marks have been used in many entries below to indicate that the information was not available or I was not sure of the correctness. Any help with these particular entries would be most appreciated. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The first part of the document will feature the releases of Graduate. This group featured Curt Smith & Roland Orzabel of Tears For Fears. The group only released one LP as Graduate in 1980 called 'Acting My Age'. None of the Graduate releases charted in the UK and were not released in the US. Curt & Roland later left Graduate and went on to form Tears For Fears.
