Latest Updates: “American Record Companies and Producers, 1888 – 1950”

The initial response to our announcement of American Record Labels and Producers 1888 – 1950  has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic! Thanks to all who took the time to get in touch. Unfortunately, we are unable to respond personally, due to the high volume of messages and the time constraints imposed by  final preparations for an early October press date.

In response to some questions, we are not accepting pre-publication orders. Our policy has always been not to charge a customer until we have goods in hand. The book’s release will be announced upon arrival from the printer, at which time orders will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. This is a limited printing of 300 deluxe hardbound copies, each of which will be accompanied by a certificate numbered and signed by the author.

Review copies are being provided to a select group of print publications only. As always, sales will be direct-to-consumer, cutting out Amazon and other costly middlemen.

Stay tuned!.


Heading to Press in October: “American Record Companies and Producers, 1888 – 1950,” by Allan Sutton




1888 – 1950
An Encyclopedic History

By Allan Sutton
Winner, ARSC Lifetime Achievement Award


Approx. 748 Pages
7″ x 10″ Full-Cloth Hardcover

Edition Limited to 300 Copies
with numbered and signed certificate



Covering more than 1,200 companies, studios, and producers (and the thousands of disc and cylinder brands they produced), from the birth of commercial recording to the start of the LP era. Each entry include locations, operating dates, personnel, commercial labels and other materials produced, and detailed histories compiled largely from primary-source materials. With subject and label indexes, extensive source citations, and corporate timelines and genealogical charts.

The book is organized by company or producer, rather than by individual label. Labels are of course covered in detail, within their respective producers’ entries. The focus is on labels intended for commercial distribution, whether to the general public, jukebox operators, or subscribers. Not included are one-offs, promo issues, vanity labels, private recordings, educational and kiddie records, companies that did not produce or market original recordings (including pirates, reissue-only producers, and those who obtained their material entirely from foreign or other outside sources), etc. The entry list includes but is not limited to:
