Here is a catalogue of Margaret Whiting masters that remain unissued as indicated by category. This page does not include media performances from radio or television broadcasts, nor does it include promotional or demonstration recordings and live appearances. All performances were recorded by commercial record companies for the purpose of issuing product on media in the form of singles, extended-plays or albums. There may be other unissued alternate takes for some of Margaret Whiting’s studio recordings, although the existence of such performances cannot be verified at this time.
