This is an authentic Paramount Records "Got The Blues" ladies t shirt.

Blind Lemon Jefferson recorded "Got The Blues", the B-Side to "Long Lonesome Blues", in Chicago, in March, 1926 for Paramount Records. It was released on 10 inch 78 RPM Shellac later that year. Reportedly, the song was a huge hit, selling hundreds of thousands of copies. 

Paramount Records was the quintessential early blues music record label, recording tracks from Ma Rainey, Blind Lemon Jefferson and Charley Patton. Even though the label boasted recording in their "New York Laboratory", almost everything was recorded at the Wisconsin Chair Company in Grafton, Wisconsin. Why a chair company? They'd hoped to sell more wooden phonograph boxes. 

Rumor has it, when the label went out of business in 1932, employees threw some of the master recordings into the river by the building. The rest were sold for scrap.  

Bluescentric's Paramount Vinyl Record ladies t-shirt is available in relaxed fit sizes up to 2XL. The material is a 4.2 oz 100% airlume combed and ringspun cotton with side seams. Heather colors are 52/48, Athletic Heather is 90/10, Heather Prism colors are 99/1.
