Paramount simply killed. But more than that, it changed how this country thought of itself. It was the first enterprise of any kind to capture what America really sounded like in the s and 30s - on its street corners, at its fish fries and country suppers, in its nightclubs and dance halls and showtents.
In the process, it was this profit-minded side of Paramount - and not a preservationist body like the Library of Congress - that inadvertently created the most significant repository of this young nation's greatest art form. Product Note: Unlike the brushed aluminum chassis used by modern product manufacturers - a process which dulls the finish to hide the slight irregularities naturally occurring in the process of molded aluminum forms - we have elected to treat the aluminum finish in a manner appropriate to the Machine Age era.
All aluminum surfaces have undergone several polishing stages to maintain a mirror-like finish and have then been anodized for durability and high gloss. This anodization process can reveal subtle surface irregularities in the aluminum form which would be absent in a more muted finish, but we do not regard these as defects and think the payoff in overall character is worth it.

Hadley are essential. You can sway to the woozy, wobbly string-band fare of the Mississippi Sheiks. Two of the best and most truly haunting songs in the entire Paramount oeuvre belong to Rube Lacy, a little-known blues moaner who only recorded these two cuts as far as anyone can tell. In its waning days, without Williams in command, Paramount was grasping for anything to sell.
Its six LPs lived in a wooden record book, and the marbled brown vinyl looked as though it had been cut from the cross-section of some grand old oak. Both the design and the text were nominated for Grammys in early December, and deservedly so. The Streamline Moderne approach intends to pull the music from a past of rural antiquity and toward urban modernity. The price, believe it or not, is worth it.
