Explanation of Categories:
Cast Recordings: lists all cast recordings, including studio recordings
Singles: the release of singles for radio airplay is more common
in the UK, so many recordings listed here may only be
available as imports
Other Recordings: this list includes compilation recordings (where
the singer in question may have included only
a single track), "guest appearances" on
the solo recordings of others, and movie soundtracks.
Music Video: like Singles, more of a UK phenomenon, so these may
be difficult to find in the US. Note that the
North American and European video standards (NTSC and
PAL, respectively) are NOT compatible, and converting
between the two is expensive.
Other Video: full length concert or theatrical performance; some
may have only aired on PBS or the BBC, and may not be
Fan Club: We do not vouch for the quality of any clubs listed below.
