For many artists of the acoustic era, a CD or two is enough to fit their entire recorded output. But in the cases of the most prolific pioneers—whose recordings number in the hundreds or thousands—a career retrospective is in order. Archeophone’s Anthology series answers the call, offering a start-to-finish overview of each artist’s complete body of work. We collect the hits and misses, the notable collaborations, the topical curiosities and historical one-of-a-kind recordings. It’s a great way to meet the most essential stars of a century ago. Each CD comes with a thick booklet containing new and original research, a biographical sketch, and track notes. Never before (and so far, not since) have there been such detailed historical examinations of and dedicated playlists to these groundbreaking legends of the acoustic horn.
