Description
XLT Paramount Records "Got The Blues" T-Shirt.

In Chicago in the winter of 1926, Paramount Records recorded Blind Lemon Jefferson playing "Got The Blues", which became the B-Side on "Long Lonesome Blues". Released on 10 inch 78 RPM Shellac later that year, the song became an early success, selling hundreds of thousands of copies. 

Though it closed in 1932, Paramount Records captured some of the greatest early blues of the 20th century, recording Ma Rainey, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Charley Patton and others. 

Though the label boasted their sound came from a secretive "New York Laboratory", almost everything was recorded at the Wisconsin Chair Company in Grafton, Wisconsin. Rumor has it that when the label went out of business, employees threw some of the master recordings into the river by the building.
