Dan W. Quinn, Anthology: The King of Comic Singers, 1894-1917

Dan W. Quinn, Anthology: The King of Comic Singers, 1894-1917For thousands of patrons listening to a phonograph for the first time in the 1890s, the voice they heard coming out of the horn belonged to Dan W. Quinn. In an era when performers were seen as secondary to the song, early record buyers understood that the name Dan Quinn meant the record was a winner. He always brought the newest hits, sung with pep and consistent clarity, and he did so thousands of times for dozens of labels. Anthology: The King of Comic Singers, 1894-1917 features 30 selections, taken from rare cylinders and discs, that highlight Quinn's quarter-century in the studio, featuring the up-to-date comic numbers he was best known for, along with sentimental ballads and ragtime songs he helped establish as standards. The 52-page booklet inside presents original research and stunning new discoveries about the man and his career, illustrated with many previously unpublished photos.

Isham Jones, Happy: The 1920 Rainbo Orchestra Sides

Years before writing "It Had to Be You" and "I'll See You in My Dreams," Isham Jones honed his craft at Mann's Rainbo Gardens in Chicago—composing, arranging, and perfecting songs that he and his band performed nightly before the dinner-and-dance patrons. Jones' style, capturing elements of the social dance craze of the 1910s and anticipating the jazz revolution of the 1920s, offers a rare glimpse into the beginnings of the era of great American dance bands. Happy presents remarkable restorations of all 37 sides Jones' Rainbo Orchestra recorded in 1920 and includes a 32-page booklet with notes by Grammy-nominated author and trombonist David Sager.
