Rise & Fall Of Paramount Records Vol. 1- Vinyl New Blues
How did a Wisconsin chair company, producing records on the cheap and run by men with little knowledge of their audience or the music business, build one of the greatest musical rosters ever assembled under one roof? Paramount Records was founded on a modest proposition: produce records as cheaply as possible, recording whatever talent was available. Over its lifetime, the label would become a race records powerhouse, its sound and fortunes directly linked to the Great Migration. By the time Paramount ceased operations in 1932, it had compiled a dizzying array of performers still unrivaled to this day, spanning early jazz titans (Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller), blues masters (Charley Patton, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Son House, Skip James), American divas (Ma Rainey, Alberta Hunter, Ethel Waters), gospel (Norfolk Jubilee Quartette), vaudeville (Papa Charlie Jackson), and the indefinable other (Geeshie Wiley, Elvie Thomas). Paramount would also directly influence the style of Robert Crumb and countless other 20th century artists and illustrators, through a series of hand-drawn ads promoting its releases in the pages of the Chicago Defender. The Rise and Fall wonder-cabinet gives equal status to page-turning narrative and new scholarship; original and newly created graphic art; industrial design; and compelling analog and digital music experiences. Volume One contains the following. 800 newly-remastered digital tracks, representing 172 artists 200+ fully-restored original 1920s ads and images 6x 180g vinyl LPs pressed on burled chestnut colored vinyl w/ hand-engraved, blind-embossed gold-leaf labels, housed in a laser-etched white birch LP folio 250 page deluxe large-format clothbound hardcover art book 360 page encyclopedia-style softcover field guide containing artist portraits and full Paramount discography Handcrafted quarter-sawn oak cabinet with lush sage velvet upholstery and custom-forged metal hardware First-of-its-kind music and image player app, allowing user mgmt of all tracks and ads, housed on custom-designed USB drive Dimensions: Length 18.5″/ Width 16″/ Height 5.75.
