GUEST,Phil d'Conch Stinson Records Revisted (58* d) RE: Stinson Records Revisted 13 Jul 21


And those mysterious '30th Anniversary' blurbs and Stinson's own new recording studio. Set up by Moe Asch himself if Goldsmith is correct:
Stinson Enlarges Disc Activities
New expansion of production and distribution activities, celebrating a 30th anniversary, is underway at the Stinson Trading Co. Inc., 27 Union Sq., New York City, record distributors.

The company has purchased the interest of Moe Asch, but will continue to distribute under both the Stinson and Asch-Stinson labels, the latter by special arrangement.

Offices are being enlarged by 10,000 sq. ft., providing expanded stockrooms and modern artists' recording studio. Officers are Herbert Harris and Irving Prosky.

At least three albums and ten 10 in. and 12 in. individual waxings will be made and released each month. Additional jobbers are joining the present list of distribution outlets.

The Stinson output includes American folk songs; boogie woogie of the “classical” school; progressive and American folk recordings; cowboy and Western songs; foreign songs, especially Russian, sung and played by exponents of the specialized type of music. Artists include Mary Lou Williams, Art Tatum, Burl Ives, Josh White, Richard Dyer-Bennett, Memphis 5, Kenneth Spencer, Coleman Hawkins, Woody Guthrie, Stuff Smith, Meade Lux Lewis, John Kirby, Lead Belly, and others.”
