Dan W. Quinn - Anthology: The King Of Comic Singers, 1894-1917

Dan W. Quinn was the first performer thousands of people heard on the phonograph in the 1890s. In an era when the performer was secondary to the song, buyers understood that Quinn's records were winners. He always sang the newest hits with pep and clarity, doing so thousands of times for dozens of labels. These 30 rare cylinders and discs highlight Quinn's quarter-century in the studio: the up-to-date comic numbers he was best known for, sentimental ballads, and ragtime songs he established as standards. The 52-page booklet presents original research about the man and his career, illustrated with many previously unpublished photos.
