‘Unheard Ofs & Forgotten Abouts
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 10’s to the 60’s.  The records have been beautifully transferred by the highly respected record collector and producer Michael Kieffer.
