Recommended Recordings – Record Labels

JSP Records

JSP Records is a re-issue label, based in the U.K., which has released some excellent compilations of classic blues, jazz, country and other early recordings.

It has also released some very worthwhile complete collections of the recordings of individual artists, which we have listed further down this page.

We have found these JSP Records CD box sets to be comprehensive collections with good re-mastering and typically offered at a reasonable retail price.

Here are some of the JSP Records sets in Our Recommendations, Recommended Recordings and Recommended Recordings-Compilations:
