Paramount Records "Got The Blues" 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.  

This is a comfortable 4.5 ounce 100% preshrunk combed and ringspun cotton anvil ladies blues music t-shirt. Sizes run very true. This shirt comes in any color you want, as long as it's black.
