The scores from theatre, film, and television musicals have been issued in different formats over the years. The following list is meant as a guide to let the reader know what recordings were made, though some are not easy to locate today. Most of the recordings listed first came out long before CDs existed, although a good number have been reissued on CD. The rest can often be found in used record stores and via online services. However, one should keep in mind that old recordings are continually being reissued on CD and, hopefully, more of the recordings found here will be in that format by the time you read this.
