Thank You! SEARCHSearch Page

Since I started to gather information in 1994, this website has remained a one-man operation, without any paid advertising. And yet it would not be what it is today without the help of many friends, collectors, singers, composers, lyricists and faithful visitors who have generously supplied me with corrections, information and cover scans. I wish to extend my sincere thanks to you all on this page!

 

Major Contributors

Hubert Wildbihler, a Bavarian collector and author of several very useful reference works dealing with musicals, provided the greatest single contribution to this website when he permitted me to include the data underlying his first book, "Musicals! Musicals!". He is always ready to help with inquiries and recently made it possible for me to obtain one hundred important cover scans.

Warren Seamans, who graciously permitted me to photograph hundreds of his LP covers, and to scan many no-longer-available CD booklet covers as well, is a co-owner of the Cast Recording List (CastRecL), which is where the serious and knowledgeable collectors hang out on the internet.

You can join CastRecL by sending an e-mail to:

The body of the message should contain only the following line:

Andreas Luketa and Markus Tüpker from Sound of Music in Essen, Germany, who provide a wealth of information about the newest releases, especially European releases.
