Songs Recorded By Fred Astaire

Not Released on Compact Disc

This is a list of recordings by Fred not available on CD. All are available on LP unless stated. This list is created by Terry Pearson.

Update, January 2002: The alternate take of "My One And Only" from 4 December 1928, and previously believed to be released only on a 78rpm record, has been found on the CD album, "A Portrait of Fred Astaire." It is for the most part identical to the widely available take, but differs only in the tap solos, which were probably improvised.
