Overview

A complete discographical compilation listing all the recordings issued by the MGM Record Company throughout its long and illustrious recording history from 1946 to 1982. It includes music specially recorded by MGM as well as recordings leased or purchased from other sources such as Musicraft, Joe Davis, and German Polydor. All music genres from jazz and country to popular and classical are covered, but the strongest feature may be the extensive recordings of films and musicals.

Volume 1 covers the period 1946 through 1960, while Volume 2 covers the 1961 through 1982 period. Volume 3 lists additional recordings in various fields—popular artists, film soundtracks, foreign recordings, classical material— and provides a complete record listing by media (singles, albums, compact discs) as well as indexes for composers, special subjects, and artists. This is an essential resource for any one interested in recorded music after the Second World War.
