Here’s a first-look opportunity to experience an historic Grammy award -winning collaboration between Jack White’s Third Man and John Fahey’s Revenant: ‘The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records Volume 1, 1917-27.’ Both volumes won Grammy awards for ‘Best Historical Box Set’ and for Art Direction.
Calling this a boxed set would be like calling the Grand Canyon a hole in the ground. It is a 2-volume omnibus of words, images and music – including books, LPs, a proprietary app and more – all housed in a cabinet-of-wonder handcrafted from oak that tells the curious tale of Paramount Records. The label, founded by the Wisconsin Chair company, amassed one of the most potent archives of American music. Volume 2 was released in Nov 2014.
