Silver Spring’s Blues Home: Adelphi Records

Zero to 180 isn’t above recycling old tricks, like posting a “vintage” high-resolution image as a shameless distraction ploy to stall for time, while it finishes pulling together over fifty years of history celebrating Gene Rosenthal and his Silver Spring-based independent music operation, Adelphi Records.

The same December, 1979 issue of Unicorn Times that brought last month’s ultra high-resolution image of the ‘Three Wise Men’ ad for Track Recorders would also carry this half-page ad for Catfish Hodges promoting his latest Adelphi long-playing release, Eyewitness Blues.

Gene Rosenthal’s story intersects with Track Recorders, but that not where it begins.  Follow Zero to 180 on Facebook so you can read the final installment of its Silver Spring music history trilogy, as soon as it hits the virtual newsstand.
