BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 2/1/15
BEGINNINGS OF THE BLUEBIRD LABEL

This week on Blues Before Sunrise we’ll focus on the beginnings of RCA Victor’s Bluebird Label. Bluebird was RCA’s budget label – they sold for 35 cents and featured Blues, Jazz and Old Timey music. The label started in 1933 and featured sessions recorded specifically for Bluebird but they also reissued sides originally recorded years earlier  for the Victor label. We’ll sort through the discography to find sides from both sources. Join us as we profile
