Although Tim Finn has no convenient  Kitchen Sink collections like that which Neil Finn (and Jaffaman) have generously provided to us fans, this is a list is meant to collate  various Tim Finn or Tim Finn associated songs that have been released here and there in various forms in chronological.  

Due to the fact that there are no deluxe editions of Tim Finn albums as there are of Crowded House, this list of odds and sods is quite a bit longer than Neil's. I've also included prominent guest spots (I.e., where he has sung lead vocals) of other artists, as well as most of the Phil Manazanera Southern Cross songs, as for all intents and purposes Southern Cross is a duo album in my opinion. Songs that are out of print are also represented here. Finally songs performed by other artists that Tim Finn wrote are included. Songs in which he sang back up but did not co-write are not included.

While this is meant to be exhaustive, It is nearly certain I've missed something. Any new info is welcome! Note: some dates are speculative.
