=Allan Holdsworth compositions=
Here is a draft for a list of published compositions by Allan Holdsworth. It lists most of the recorded tracks from 1969 onwards where Allan is listed as a composer or co-composer. There are a few exceptions. Some of the recordings featuring group improvisations have been excluded from this list. This goes for recordings in the name of John Stevens and Chad Wackerman, plus a few others. Allan would sometimes rework themes and include them in new compositions of different names, I have tried to note this on each composition's listing. Sometimes recordings of compositions under the same name feature additional material. Allan would perform a few tunes live that were never officially released, these tunes are not listed here. With one exception, Holdsworth compositions featured on BBC recordings are not featured. The list is by default sorted alphabetically, but can be sorted by any of the columns.
