Blues and Gospel Records


Fourth Edition

Compiled by Robert M. W. Dixon, the late John Godrich, and Howard W. Rye

Since its first edition in 1964, Dixon and Goodrich's Blues and Gospel Records has been dubbed "the bible" of collectors of pre-war African American music. It provides a exhaustive listing of all recordings of the period, from the earliest cylinders up to the end of 1943, with full details on singers, accompanists, place and date of recording, titles, issue numbers, and alternate takes. The fourth edition has been thoroughly revised, adding about 150 new artists as well as numerous newly discovered recordings of other artists. The book now also includes early cylinder recordings of gospel music from the 1890s.
