Alex van der Tuuk

Soft Cover, 6" x 9", 282 pp w/illustrations

First published in 2003 (and long since out of print), this work has now been revised and expanded. A well-written history of the famed Paramount label, drawn from interviews and newly-discovered source materials. Supplemented by many never-before-published photos, this excellent volume not only covers Paramount's legendary series of race records, but documents the history of the corporation as a whole. An essential volume for pre-war record collectors in general and blues afficionados in particular. In addition to updated information, the book includes two brand new sections: an illustrated history of the studio and pressing plant site and a chapter on post-NYRL attempts to revive the label.
