This discography provides a comprehensive listing of the songs from motion picture musicals, and the singers who performed them on commercially available albums. Covering the period from "The Jazz Singer" in 1927 to "Three Amigos" in 1987, and including 666 albums and 6500 song titles, the book is a companion volume to Lynch's "Broadway on Record". The scope is primarily American but albums of some foreign films have been included. The entries are listed alphabetically by film title with the name of the company that produced it and the year it was first released. Remakes of musical films are listed chronologically, and the original label and number are given, as well as information on the most recent reissue. This reference work offers easy access to a wealth of information on the subject of recorded songs from motion picture musicals and assists the user in identifying many little-known facts, such as the names of the title-song singers, names of singers who "dubbed" the voices of the stars and additional composers and lyricists where there were several contributors to the film's score. Also provided is a complete guide to recording availability and type, and major composer, lyricists and musical conductor credits are given, with an alphabetical list of cast members who sing on the recording.
