The Westminster Legacy

We are releasing "Westminster Legacy - The Collector's Edition" celebrating the cult label which was founded in New York in 1949.

When the Westminster Recording Company was founded, the timing could hardly have been more propitious. After the traumas of World War II and its aftermath, both Europe and America were ready for new beginnings and musical life was getting back to normal. Home listening -- tied for half a century to clunky 78rpm shellac discs holding not more than five minutes of music per side -- was undergoing huge changes.
