Established in 1917, Paramount Records was home to artists such as Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Ma Rainey, Fletcher Henderson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, King Oliver and Ethel Walters, among others.

Third Man and Revenant Records last year released a comprehensive 800-song anthology of music from Paramount’s first decade of existence called “The Rise and Fall of Paramount Records, Volume One (1917-27)” and recently followed it up with Volume Two which spans 1928-1932.
