Story

The second (and last) installment in the chronicle of Paramount's improbable rise from a furniture company to a jazz and blues juggernaut. In its final 5 year push, Paramount birthed the entire genre of Mississippi Delta blues and issued some of the most coveted records in the history of wax. It was the first enterprise of any kind to capture what America really sounded like in the 1920’s and 30’s on its street corners, at its fish fries and country suppers, in its nightclubs and dance halls and showtents. In the process, it was the profit-minded side of Paramount — and not a preservationist body like the Library of Congress — that inadvertently created the most significant repository of this young nation's greatest art form. This deluxe set includes six 180gm LPs pressed on label-less alabaster white vinyl (each side featuring hand-etched numerals and holographic images), a 250-page clothbound hardcover book showcasing original Paramount art, a 400-page encyclopedic guide to the artists, and more. The entire collection is presented in a polished aluminum and stainless steel cabinet, inspired by Machine Age design and upholstered in sapphire blue velvet. Co-produced by leading Paramount scholar Alex van der Tuuk and presented by Third Man and Revenant Records, with all masters issued under license agreement with GHB Jazz Foundation.
