Tiny Dust-to-Digital record label gathers big attention

ATLANTA (AP) — A tiny Georgia-based record label has made big noise in the music world with new releases of hard-to-find recordings compiled from old 78 rpm discs and obscure archives.

Since its first release in 2003, Atlanta-based Dust-to-Digital has become a powerhouse in the niche market of music that's been gathering dust while it waits to find or regain an audience. The label has released antique 78 recordings of blues, gospel, jazz and other styles, along with musicologists' field recordings of rural musicians and indigenous people all over the world.

Nine of the label's releases have been nominated for Grammy Awards, and one actually won.

This month it's releasing box sets by a renowned American collector of roots music and a British man who recorded musicians in Africa.
