I compiled a discography of audio recordings on which Lemuel Fowler is thought to have performed as a pianist, and in one case as a vocalist. Little original research went into this compilation, other than observing the dates on which some advertising appeared which anchored the dates on which the records were released to the public. The sources are various editions of Brian Rust's work, and I used the information in the CD jewel case for RST Records JPCD-1520-2, "Lem Fowler: Complete Recorded Works 1923-1927" which was in turn compiled from Rust also. I checked images of record labels that have appeared online in many cases to compare with the information in the published discographies, in which case I refer to "image" as a data source. The abbreviation "Mont" is an indication that the data comes from the CD booklet, "Rust" means the work of Brian Rust as accessed online.Under "Label composer credit", information in parentheses () is for cases of unreleased records that do not exist to our knowledge, while information in brackets [] is supplemental to what actually appears on the labels.

I have not (yet) made any attempt to compile a discography of recordings of Fowler's works by musicians or groups that did not include Fowler as a performer, though that would be an interesting resource as well.

After I compiled this, I found the excellent work published on line by K.-B. Rau in mid-2021 entitled THE RECORDINGS OF LEM FOWLER: An Annotated Tentative Personnelo-Discography. This author's insightful work is based on very careful critical listening to the recordings, and comes to surprising conclusions in some cases in variance with the 'received wisdom' of Rust. Although the biographical information on Fowler available to Rau is up to now incomplete and incorrect in some cases, that does not affect the validity of the results based on the records themselves. In particular, I find the ideas of this author regarding the possible use of Arthur Harrington Gibbs's band for the last Fowler recordings quite interesting and plausible, and worthy of further research and evaluation. I do find Rau to be rather critical of Fowler's pianism, particularly early on, but of course this is a matter of opinion.
