Hit Parade Story: The Legendary Wurlitzer Sound is a collection of 17 music classics from 1938 to 1949 that were originally released on 78 rpm records and played on the Wurlitzer Juke Box of that era. The songs have been recorded from the Jukebox with the legendary Neumann U47 microphones to enable their transfer to Analog Tape and DSD by Fone’s Giulio Cesare Ricci. The musicians featured on this album include Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong along with the Big Band Orchestras conducted by Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and Woody Herman, among others.

The inspiration for this album came during a meeting at the Turin Salone della Musica, where Giulio Cesare Ricci met Elisabetta and Paolo De Angelis, owners of the Turin company Old. They spent a pleasant evening together listening to music on juke boxes, and then Giulio Cesare Ricci said: “Why don’t we try recording directly from the juke box with the legendary Neumann U47 microphones?”

Everyone loved the idea and it led to the creation of this album. Fone wants to pass on the feeling which sparked their enthusiasm for the juke box. Their hope is to infect many with our enthusiasm for this musical tradition, not only collectors and connoisseurs, so that even those who don’t possess a Wurlitzer Juke Box can feel the infinite pleasure of putting a nickel in a slot and listening to a recording of days gone by…
