Selected Warren Zevon Discograpy
Click on the album title for the index of songs
and the lyrics to songs for that album.
HERE is an interesting article, printed online for the first time in complete form, by Fred Petrovsky. It first appeared in the November 98 issue of Attache (USAirways) magazine and is here by arrangement with the author. While I don't agree with everything he writes, I thought you'd like to see it.

"Gonna Have A Good Time Tonight"/"Narrator"was released on IRS-52867 in 1986.
Matthew says: WZ is hard to find on this record. He isn't the lead singer, but I think his voice shows up in the background on one of the two songs (I forget which one; it's been a while since I've listened to it). I don't know music well enough to be able to say that it's him playing guitar or piano. At the time their membership consisted of Mike Mills, Bill Berry, Bryan Cook, Peter Buck, and Warren Zevon.
You may also be interested to know that the song "Wanted Dead Or Alive" was included on an album called "Various Early Recordings Of The Superstars" (EMI-Treasury 1985 SQ-17184). It's an odd sort of an album that will also be of interest to diehard fans of Rod Stewart, Billy Joel, and David Bowie (among others) assuming that such people exist.

Misc. Info, courtesty of KT:
Elvira Presents: Revenge of the Monster Hits. 1995, #72179 (Werewolves of London. And the press release says Warren is a mainstay on the radio! Which station? And why am I not working for them?) Credits list Werewolves as Asylum single #45472, for anyone who cares.
Dr Demento Presents: Spooky Tunes and Scary
Melodies. 199_, #71777
Have a Nice Day, Vol. 21, no date, #71201 (Werewolves of London)
Have a Nice Decade: The 70's Pop Culture Box Set, 1998, #72919 (Werewolves of London. This is a decent set anyway, judging by the titles and the ability for any decade to get better the farther away we are from it. An excellent excuse to replace all my 45's.
