Welcome Tapheads to what I hope will surely be the Internet's largest (but not the loudest, I can't make a promise like that) discography of England's loudest band.... SPINAL TAP.

A lot of Tap discographies have been attempted... in books, in magazines, and on websites.  But they just seemed to be missing something.  Well, actually, more than something - they seemed to be missing quite a bit.  In fact, they were usually big bunches of incomplete shit - BUT NO LONGER!  Over time, it is my deepest hopes that this discography will grow into something massive.  I hope that it will grow, text wise and illustration wise, into the most complete discography of Tap if ever there was one.

Credit where it's due - fellow Tapheads Bernard Anderson (especially) and Michael Fennelly have contributed to what you see below, with additional information coming from the Tapular works of Chip Rowe, Karl French, and Peter Occhiogrosso. And of course, I must offer my compliments to the holy creators themselves, Messrs. Tufnel, St. Hubbins and Smalls. No thanks to you, DiBergi.

But hey, enough of my yakkin'.... whatd'ya say?  LET'S BOOGIE.
