Pioneers

Archeophone presents its new series of CDs, compilations focusing on some of the most intriguing performing artists of the early recording industry. Very few of these acoustic era pioneers have been reissued in the years since their original records appeared, and those who have been are represented by only a few of their biggest hits. Our Pioneers series will give long-overdue in-depth treatments of key early artists. Each CD will look at a specific period of a performer’s career, presenting his or her releases in chronological order. As usual, you will get thorough and provocative notes with each package, including writing about the artist’s influence upon the early recording industry. Biographical notes will concentrate primarily on the years covered by the recordings. Archeophone hopes that our new series will be prompt further research into the lives, careers, and contributions of these fascinating personalities—true recording pioneers.
