Paramount Records was formed in 1917 with little fanfare. Its founders ran a Wisconsin furniture company and knew nothing of the record business. Its mission was modest: produce records as cheaply as possible with whatever talent was available. The results were unequivocal: the records sounded bad and sold poorly. Paramount was soon on the threshold of bankruptcy.
