Subtitled: Rare and unheralded gramophone recordings from around the world -- (1916-1964). "On this, the first release on Frank Fairfield's Tompkins Square imprint, Pawn Records, Fairfield presents an exciting collection of reissued recordings from his personal 78 rpm record collection. It provides a broad view of the 'Gramophone era,' specifically concerning the recording of vernacular music from around the world: from Atlanta, Georgia to Kisumu, Kenya; from the '10s to the '60s. The records have been beautifully transferred by the highly respected record collector and producer Michael Kieffer. Frank's self-titled debut album on Tompkins Square has won over fans like Greil Marcus and Ry Cooder, and landed Frank opening spots for Fleet Foxes and Brendan Benson. Pitchfork ran an extensive interview with Frank in their new column The Out Door, and he's been a staple on Greg Vandy's show on KEXP, Seattle." Includes 16-page booklet with notes on each track by Fairfield.
