The Rise & Fall of Paramount Records: Volume One 1917-1927
Descriptive textHow 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 limited-edition, hand-sculpted “Cabinets of Wonder,” jointly released by Jack White’s Third Man Records and John Fahey’s Revenant Records. Volume One covers the label’s improbable rise from 1917-1927.
Volume One contains the following:
- 6 x 180-gram vinyl LPs pressed on burled chestnut colored vinyl with hand-engraved, blind-embossed gold-leaf labels housed in a laser-etched white birch LP folio
- 800 newly-remastered digital tracks, representing 172 artists and accessible via a first-of-its-kind music and image player app that allows user management of all tracks and ads, housed on a custom-designed USB drive
- 250-page large-format, clothbound hardcover art book
- 360-page encyclopedia-style softcover field guide containing artist portraits and full Paramount discography
