Records: Diamonds on
Within the books main pages are numbers of photos of artists, old records, venues, advertisements, and even business cards. The wealth of information thus allows the book to fit well within a certain niche audience interested in researching southern music of the period. As interesting as the biography of a woman and her business is, Trumpet Records also contains a tremendously valuable resource within its Appendix. Detailed lists are provided of all Trumpet and Globe sessionographies, all singles printed by the companies, all chart appearances, reviews of releases, and even a Trumpet re-issue listing. For fans of southern music, Trumpet Records is an absolute must-read.
