A Residential Timeline

This is a timeline of all of the works by The Residents that I have information on, including starting dates, completion dates, and release dates. Most of the data here is taken from Uncle Willie's Highly Opinionated Guide to the Residents.

*Emphasized* entries represent major releases. Entries with a person's name under "Type" are collaborations with that person. Entries with an album's name under "Type" are contributions to that (non-Residents) album.
