Another is the blues singer Henry Townsend, who recorded in every decade
from the 1920s through the 2000s. His 1920s recordings were electrical,
Another candidate is Earl "Fatha" Hines. His first recording was in
1923, which would have been acoustical; his last, according to
Wikipedia, was in 1981, which *could* have been digital but probably wasn't.
As far as who made the most records...for that competition is it
required that the person in question be the named artist on the label?
Because there are some studio musicians who worked on a heck of a lot of
records, including rock drummer Dave Mattacks and some of the members of
the Los Angeles "Wrecking Crew". Also some Nashville session players.
