A compilation of the complete information concerning all commercial recordings made by Fred Waring and the Pennsylvanians for the period 1923-1984.

Fred Waring and the Pennsylvanians entertained America for 69 years. They were successful pioneers in many aspects of the entertainment business: stage shows, radio, television, movies, concerts, and recordings. Waring and his group made over a thousand commerical recordings starting in 1923 for the Victor Talking Machine Company and then continued with Decca Records, Capitol, Reprise, and Mega labels. This discography documents each one of the recordings as well as the transcriptions that the Pennsylvanians recorded for various program services. It is an invaluable research resource for record historians, researchers, and recording collectors.

In addition to the detailed alphabetical listing of all song recordings, the book also supplies a chronological list of each recording session and the songs recorded on that day; a list of arrangers’ names and the songs for which they wrote the arrangements; a complete album listing; and a listing of all known commercial transcription recordings. This is the only complete discography available on the subject.
