The Pathé–Perfect Discography American Issues, 1922–1930 Volume 2

Subtitle or Edition: 
Dance Series
Annotation: 

The Pathé-Perfect Discography covers all recordings (including those from outside sources) that were issued jointly on American Pathé and Perfect. Coverage begins with the introduction of Perfect in 1922 and extends through the end of the American Pathé label in early 1930. "Phantom" Pathé issues (for which catalog numbers were assigned in 1930, but which apparently were unissued) are also included. Special attention has been paid to the joint Cameo and A.R.C. issues. The Record Research group used synchronized turntables to determine identical, alternate, and unrelated takes; actual, assigned, and false master numbers; artist pseudonymous, and other fine points. Their findings, many of which supplement or correct what appears in some current dance-band discographies, are published here for the first time. Every record appears on its own line, with verbatim label credits and all relevant markings in the wax, from first-hand inspection of the original discs. 382 total pages, 7" x 10" quality softcover.
