recordJohnny Depp Discographyrecord
(established 2006)

As a music collector even before I became a die-hard Johnny Depp fan, it has been natural for me to start picking up recordings that feature Johnny.   This discography pertains only to Johnny's contributions to audio recordings, including:  musician, spoken performance, songwriter, producer, artist, or author.   Many of the recordings cited below are still available new or used- check your local record shop, Amazon (including their used store) and eBay, as well as iTunes, for many of these!

Some information about Johnny's participation on commercial releases has been available on Artist Direct, but this is an incomplete and somewhat inaccurate list.  Where possible, I've provided my own scans of the liner notes so that it can be seen exactly what Johnny's true credits are.

This is a work in progress, and certainly not meant to be the last word on Johnny's musical pursuits!  Any additions-  info about additional recordings Johnny has participated in, record reviews or articles, scans, etc., would be most appreciated!!
