Jack White's Paramount Records Box Sets Face Legal Challenge

(The Blues) Jack White's Paramount Records box sets are the subject of legal action after another label claimed they own the release rights to the iconic firm's catalogue.

Third Man Records, owned by White, teamed up with Revenant Records last year to create The Rise & Fall Of Paramount Records, a two-volume collection spanning blues, jazz and related music originally released between 1917 and 1932.

The "Box Of Wonder" packages drew attention as they include over 800 tracks, six special vinyl discs and a host of collectable items, all presented in handmade wooden containers. The first was released last year and the second is set for launch in November.

But not-for-profit body the GHB Foundation claim they've owned the Paramount rights since 1970 - and spokesman Lars Edegan says he has paperwork to prove it.

Revenant boss Dean Blackwood has responded by telling Offbeat: "We informed the foundation we would gladly come to an agreement if they could prove ownership. To date they haven't." more.
