This is just a short list of The KLF’s main releases. Their later catalogue naturally spreads over countless variants and different releases in multiple countries, especially once the Stadium House period began, but we decided not to include all of them here for sanity reasons.
- Edited (free of dangerously illegal samples) version of 1987 LP. Includes free instructions on how to add your own samples and recreate the original release in the privacy and comfort of your own home or studio.
- 1989Compilation album gathering various JAMS singles as well as a number of alternate versions and remixes. The second disc has been rumoured to be the unreleased “Towards The Trance” album listed in some KLF info sheets.
- Six-track mini compilation released in the wake of the success of “What Time Is Love?” in Europe, gathering various cover versions as well as a live version performed by The KLF at Land Of Oz.
- 1990Started life as a collaboration between Jimmy Cauty and Alex Paterson before the latter left the project to work on The Orb fulltime. Cauty then (allegedly) deleted Paterson’s contribution and released the album as Space instead.
- 1991The album that catapulted The KLF into mega-stardom. Spawned three hit singles of which one (3 a.m. Eternal) got them to Number One in the UK (their second after Doctorin’ The Tardis).
- The one which started it all. Released as a while label run of 500 copies only. The original version slightly differs from the later releases on “1987” and “Shag Times” as it uses the original MC5/Beatles samples during the intro.
- Commercial release in proper picture sleeve with the MC5/Beatles samples removed from the intro. Samantha Fox samples still intact, though.
- First single following the release of “1987”, though not included on the later released “Who Killed The JAMS?” album.
- 1987First release of the Disco 2000 side project.
- 1987Gospel singers, Petula Clark samples, Scottish raps – it’s all in here.
- First single released under their KLF moniker, though released as “The JAMs aka The Timelords” in the USA to link it to the “History Of The JAMs” compilation.
- 1988Second Disco 2000 single, strongly based on The JAMS’ “The Candystore” (see “Who Killed The JAMS?”).
- Probably the most nauseating record in the world, “Doctorin’ The Tardis” saw The Timelords climb to #1 in 1988. Built around the “Doctor Who” theme and Gary Glitter’s “Rock And Roll”.
- One of the cornerstones of The KLF’s history. “What Time Is Love?” was meant to kick off The KLF’s Pure Trance’ series but failed to gain significant recognition in the UK at first until it became a hit single in European clubs.
- 2000 pressed, 1000 warped. See FAQ for information on existing bootlegs.
