Clarksdale Mayor Bill Luckett, an honored guest at the premier, is well-versed in blues history, but says even he came away with some new information. “I had no idea that Paramount Records had even existed, much less that it operated out of a chair factory in Wisconsin,” Luckett said. “I also didn’t know that H.C. Speir, out of Jackson, was sending blues artists to Wisconsin Chair Company, where they made cases for phonographs."
