Coming this Spring
Our next vinyl release is a 10-incher, “Celebrated, 1895-1896” by the Unique Quartette, with six cylinders, five of which haven’t been reissued before. The full-size, four-page folio contains an essay by Richard Martin with stunning new findings about the origins of the group and first-ever biographical data on the members most likely to have been on these specific records. Transcriptions of the selections are included on the sleeve.
