As a helpful guide to the enthusiastic collector, here’s an almost complete list of recordings containing music composed or arranged by Peter Schickele that are not available in Ye Old Schickele Shoppe’s Peter Schickele Recordings page.  Some of these may still be found without much trouble in major record stores, others will take a bit of searching to track down, and a few of them will be a real challenge to locate.  

We’ve tried to make this list as complete as possible, but there’s always the chance we’ve overlooked some even harder to find recordings.  If you happen to know of anything we’ve missed, please let us know via e-mail.
