"The Rise And Fall of Paramount Records" Volume 1 1917-1927

 Jo McCaugheyHow 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? The answer lies in 'The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records 1917-1932,' an epic, two-volume omnibus of art, words and music housed in a limited-edition, hand-sculpted cabinet-of-wonder, to be jointly released by Jack White's Third Man Records and John Fahey's Revenant Records.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
