Join us as we explore some of the rarest of the rare — John Tefteller's legendary collection of Paramount 78s. One of the most important blues labels of the 1920s and early 1930s, we’ll hear classics from Skip James, Charley Patton, Son House, Blind Blake — and, the $37,000 Tommy Johnson 78. It’s rare Paramounts from John Tefteller, on this episode of Blues Unlimited.

A personal note from the producer: John Tefteller's yearly calendars are a treasured tradition in the blues community, and have been for well over a decade. Even in the best of times, this labor of love is a "break even" sort of proposition. To help support this unique and incredible body of work — and help guarantee future blues calendars in the years to come— here's a link where you can purchase the 2017 edition of his calendar: http://bluesimages.com/html/product_html/front_page_2017.html
