Fletcher Henderson: The Complete Pre-Louis Vocalion/Brunswicks

I have no affiliation with this sale or company, but wanted to share the listing since I've never seen this pressing...

FLETCHER HENDERSON The Complete Pre-Louis Vocalion/Brunswicks (Amazing 1967 UK limited edition set of SIX 10" vinyl LPs, available by subscription only, featuring fifty nine tracks recorded in New York between 27th October 1923 & 24th September 1924 with Rosa Henderson on vocals & Coleman Hawkins on Tenor on several tracks, including a 12-page booklet & with each in their own front laminated picture sleeve)

The Audubon record label was formed in the 1960s by the legendary transfer engineer John R.T. Davies to present rare 1920s Jazz and Blues in the best possible sound quality and from the best possible copies and at the correct pitch. Pressings were restricted to 99 copies of each title to avoid attracting Purchase Tax and consequently are now very rare. The sound quality of these transfers has seldom, if ever, been bettered! Here is the magnificent 6-Volume set of Fletcher Henderson's pre-Louis Vocalions including ALL the blues accompaniments to Rosa Henderson, Viola McCoy, Edna Hicks etc. plus the Brunswick band and blues accompaniment sides. Complete with the original booklet the set (numbered AA to AAK) is in Near Mint condition
