A List of Louise Gold's Recordings
Louise Gold is blessed with a remarkably fine singing voice. It is therefore perhaps not too surprising to find that she has been featured on many albums. Unfortunately this is frequently as a supporting player. The first album she was featured on was The Muppet Show 2, recorded in 1978. The various albums she has appeared on are listed below in alphabetical order. If anyone knows of any that have been omitted from this list do contact the webmaster.
In the webmaster’s considered opinion, if you wanted to choose just one of the many album’s Ms Gold has featured on over the years, then the Music Theatre Hour recording of Anything Goes is the one to get.

The Count’s Countdown - (Sony Wonder CD) LK63409, (Sony Wonder Cassette) LT63409 – Louise Gold was credited as The Countess, album produced in 1997.

See section on Sesame Street skit descriptions for the reasoning. The consensus among her puppeteering colleagues is that she did.
