Below is a list of ELSA LANCHESTER recordings, focusing primarily on musical
material.

If anyone has additional information corrections and additions for these AND
her other recordings, I'd like to update to the list.

 

Particularly - what other 78's and details such as matrix numbers and
recording dates ???

                     HIFI Records - details for the re-issues, which
contain or omit the Laughton's comments?, other Canadian, Australian, UK,
etc. issues ???

                     HMV CLP 1417 - I can not find a listing for this - are
these the same recordings as were issued by VERVE or a different session ???

                     Broadcast material ???.

                     release dates, missing catalog numbers and track
information ???

                     cassette releases (CS) were these issued on LP's or
other formats ???

                     on soundtrack recordings - does Lanchester appear on
the recordings, if so what is her contribution ???

 

If anyone has the LEGACY CD, I would greatly appreciate a copy of the
notes..

 

 

THANK YOU!
Best Wishes, Thomas.
