Description
Summary:The Goldenrod Music records (1976-2011) contain catalogs, meeting minutes, sale statistics, internal correspondence and correspondence with retailers and artists, and other administrative records of the company. Additionally, this collection contains records of other companies associated with Goldenrod founder Terry Grant, including the Goldenrod Records LLC record label (approximately 1990-[year]), Mellow Muse Productions (1977-[year]), Act Two Productions, and River Women Productions. Also included in the collection are posters and press information for Tenth Muse Productions (provided by founder, producer and current Goldenrod manager, Susan Frazier) and some records relating to Ladyslipper Music. Particularly rich in the collection are artists' presskits and promotional photographs, photographs and ephemera from Michigan Womyn's Festivals, as well as approximately 700 recordings in vinyl, cassette, and CD formats by lesbian and feminist women musicians. Born out of the second wave feminist movement and women's music movement, Goldenrod was originally one of 60 independant women's music distributors, and as a result of the evolving music industry, became the last still in operation. This collection is a rich resource for information on women's music, musicians and entertainers, and the broader evolving music industry.
