Labels and Innovations

Archeophone's 3000 series, Labels and Innovations , introduces audiences to individual labels or recording innovations from the acoustic era of recording. We give you behind-the-scenes looks at the inventive minds and the marketing schemes that shaped the fledgling industry. Releases in this series will feature tracks that present the recordings released by a particular label (or influenced by an innovation in recording technology) and will give you a detailed booklet explaining the origins and history of the label or innovation.

Our booklet for The Pink Lambert, for instance, tells the history of the Lambert Company of Chicago, describes the technology used to make the Lambert cylinders, and presents color images of the rare cylinders remastered for this release. This series will both introduce newcomers and remind collectors of the labels and changes that altered the recording industry.
