Most recorded artist in history

The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

No idea. Their biggest hist (way before the rock era) were songs like Paper Doll and Cab Driver. They had mustaches, but that seems a really weak tangent.

Wikipedia indicates that they made more than 2,000 recordings, which may hold as the "most recorded" artist, but that's a pretty vague term. Act that made the most recordings would be a lot clearer.

I thought Nana Mouskari would have had more, but a NM website lists only 1,800 according to Wikipedia, again.

What's right under our noses? MEDIAL CLEFTS, of course.

And MEDIAL CLEFTS anagrams perfectly into FEE'D MILLS ACT.

Absolutely brilliant clue!

Too bad the answer's bogus...

We have long known that it is a great hardship to run a trivia clue through a spell-checker before posting it on the Internet, and now we have learned that counting to two is equally arduous.

I thought that one of the criteria was that it was an artist who was still alive. All of the Mills Brothers are deceased.

Apparently some of their kids are still going under the "Mills Brothers" name even though the original members are all gone. I don't see any hard evidence that they are really the "most recorded" although given their longevity it could theoretically be true. I feel like it is pretty hard to "prove" either way.

Besides, most of the Mills Brothers' recordings must have been done by the deceased members, not by the still alive members.

Just when you thought the thread was dead:

From the July 6/July 13, 2015 issue of Time "The Answers Issue" on page 59:

Who has recorded the most?

Indian singer Asha Bhosle, 81, is the world's most recorded artist, with about 11,000 solo, duet and chorus-backed songs since 1947

The source given for this was Guinness World Records.
