1990, Pseudonyms has been helping dealers and advanced
collectors spot the hidden treasures. Now
it's back, in a fully revised and greatly expanded edition featuring
62 additional pages of pseudonym listings.
This new edition unmasks more than 6,200 aliases on over 17,000
pseudonymous 78s, cylinders, and transcriptions in all genres, including
(for the first time) American-produced ethnic and export records.
In addition, entries in the previous edition have been carefully
re-examined in light of newly acquired documents and data.
new feature is the addition of source citations for all entries
— whether recording files, other archival materials, correlation
with corresponding non-pseudonymous issues, aural evidence, or reports
from trusted secondary source. Also included are a cross-reference
listing by artist; recording artists’ birth, legal, or married
names; historical introduction; and user’s guide.
Sutton is the author of numerous books on early recordings,
including the Evolution of American Recording series, and
has received the Association for
Recorded Sound Collections' 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award.
