Description
Original circa-1920's 78-RPM shellac record, 9.75 in. dia., released under the 'KKK' label and containing the compositions 'The Bright Fiery Cross' as the 'A' side, with 'Mystic City' as the 'B' side. Both tracks are claimed to be the 'Best in Klan Music' and performed by '100% Americans'. True to form, the label also incorporates the image of a burning cross. Some scratches with two cracks, sold as is. These 'KKK'-branded records were recorded, pressed and released under private contract by Gennett Records of Richmond, Indiana, which is better remembered for its early recordings of black jazz artists, including Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Duke Ellington and King Oliver.
