Fonotone Records Boxed Set Released

Dust-to-Digital releases a 5-disc retrospective of the last 78 rpm record label in America. After spending his early years soaking up the sound of thousands of 78 rpm discs, record collector Joe Bussard decided in 1956 to make some recordings of a few guitar-picking pals in his local National Guard unit. Little did Bussard know that his hobby would turn into a 14 year odyssey which would result in hundreds of custom-made 78 rpm records to be issued on his own Fonotone label out of his parents' basement in Frederick, Maryland. Audio restoration and mastering by Michael Graves, Osiris Studio.
