I've Got a Mind Like a Playgroup

Hi -- I'm a newbie to the group, but I've loved Pat's music ever since the mid-80's, when while looking for the latest Love n' Rockets single (at the time, I think it was "Kundalini Express"), the guy at the local record shop held up BLOODY NONSENSE and said, "Hey, David J is in this band, too." (Yep, BLOODY NONSENSE, which means I live on the left side of the Big Pond.)
So I gladly bought the record and fell in love with it instantly.
At the time, though, my record buying dollars were limited, so I passed the chance to buy any of the original Glass records which were still available (sob!) at that time. Fortunately I managed to stumble onto a couple of them later.
I always remained fond of the older sound of Pat's records, although now I know that he considers them too thin and unprofessional sounding. But the later stuff just wasn't doing much for me, so by BIG PLANET I lost interest.
Now, however, with the release of DRAINING THE GLASS, I've started listening to Pat's music a lot, and even those late '80's albums are sounding pretty spiffy (even if the production is starting to sound pretty dated). I still have yet to even find any of Pat's albums from the '90's. His stuff is so dratted hard-to-find over here.
But I _do_ have, on vinyl:
A SCANDAL IN BOHEMIA
THE GIFT OF MUSIC
CULT OF THE BASEMENT
BIG PLANET, SCAREY PLANET
and DRAINGING THE GLASS on CD. Nice to find y'all.
Now, here's a question: I'm looking for a more comprehensive JB discography than what was available on the website. Specifically, I'd like to know both the A _and_ B-sides of all the JB singles. Can anyone help me out with that?
