Note: Numerous other live and compilation albums have been released featuring performances by the Mk.1 and Mk.2 line-ups of the band. Many of these contain superfluous material and are often unapproved by the musicians featured on the releases and, in some cases, the licensing is questionable. As such no attempt to list all available live or compilation releases has been made here and the listing above focusses on the key live and studio releases.
