The song list for this recording is taken from the CD issue. Later CD editions added two tracks — "Wedding Dance" and "The Rumor" — that were recorded at the 1964 sessions but were issued until the second CD issue of this recording. "Wedding Dance" is the music known in the show as the "Bottle Dance." (The number known in the show as "Wedding Dance" is different.) "The Rumor" was listed as "I Just Heard" in the playbill for the original production and all subsequent Broadway productions until the 2004 revival, in which the song was cut and replaced with a new song titled "Topsy-Turvy."
The song listed on CD issues as "The Dream" was listed as "Tevye's Dream (The Tailor Motel Kamzoil)" on earlier issues, including the original LP issue. In the production's playbill, it was listed as "The Tailor, Motel Kamzoil."
The most recent CD issue of this recording (the "Deluxe Edition") adds a number of bonus tracks. Six tracks are taken from Sheldon Harnick's 1971 talk at the 92nd Street (available complete on DRG). On these tracks, Harnick discusses and performs two cut songs — "When Messiah Comes" and "How Much Richer Could One Man Be?" (aka "The Richest Man in Town") — and also discusses the creation of "If I Were a Rich Man," which he also performs.
Another track is the violinist Vladimir Spivakov's recording of "If I Were a Rich Man," accompanied by the Moscow Virtuosi.
Finally, there are seven tracks of Harnick discussing the show. The last two tracks listed below are not Harnick singing the songs listed, but rather discussing the creation of those songs.
