Superior Records Catalog • April1932

Gennett’s Superior label was headed for extinction when this April 1932 flyer was issued. It was discontinued in June, and surviving Gennett documents show that some of the last issues sold only a few dozen copies. Many of the records listed here are reissues of earlier Gennett-label releases and/or also appeared on the Champion label. Many use artist pseudonyms — the “Chicago Sheiks” are actually Big Bill Broozny & Steele Smith, “Harmonica Jim” is William B. Russell, “Harper & Hall” are John McGhee & Frank Welling, etc. (From the Bill Bryant archive)
