Description

Paramount discs are perhaps the most sought-after by collectors of 78 rpm records. One reason for their collectability is the admirable 12000 series that provided some of the finest blues recordings ever made. As if the blues roster wasn't enough, the company recorded a number of jazz luminaries as well. Paramount also recorded 'rural' performances of hillbilly or old time music - an area rather neglected when it comes to reissues. There was a fine LP compilation issued in the 1970s and there have been a number of tracks on anthologies, but this is the first time a more in-depth collection or assessment has appeared. Courtesy of Joe Bussard, the man who has preserved so much classic American roots music, JSP present 100 of the best examples of Paramount old time music covering a wide variety of acts recorded 1925-1932. Featured artists include The Fruit Jar Guzzlers, Wilmer Watts & The Lonely Eagles, The Dixie Crackers, The Red Brush Rowdies, Fay & The Jay Walkers, The Kentucky Ramblers, The Blue Ridge Highballers and over 20 more individuals, duos and groups. Authoritative annotation tells the story.
