Document Records Catalogue


DOCUMENT RECORDS (established 1985) has uniquely sourced, re-mastered , digitised and re-issued the vast majority of Afro-American acoustic blues, jazz, spirituals and gospel recordings (1900-1945) from the original 78 recordings.

We are in the process of migrating to a new web site where you will be able to buy our CDs and download individual tracks and CDs but for now our lengendary "Blues, Blues Christmas" Albums are back on sale and for direct download from the new Document Store.

Claim your Free "Gin for Christmas " EP which contains tracks that are not available on the CDs.

Blues Blues Christmas

Visit The NEW

Your antidote for those endless weeks of shopping mall Christmas Muzak. Here, for you, are the best of Blues, Gospel and Jazz to Rock and Roll, Doo-Wop, Rockabilly, Calypso and Old Timey Country music; including many songs which have not been anthologized before.

With all four volumes of the Blues, Blues Christmas series, you will have hours and hours of music for that next Christmas party, enough music until the eggnog runs out!

So, sit back, tip a glass of holiday cheer and enjoy our selection of yuletide classics spanning from the 1920’s through to the 1960’s; a simpler, more wholesome time.



You can find our Facebook page here .

Best wishes from all at Document
