Morrison Records is an independent record label, based in Seattle, Washington. It was founded in the 1940s by “Morrie” Morrison (1888-1984) and his wife, Alice Nadine Morrison (1892-1978), . Much of this catalog consists of recordings written from the 1920s through the 1950s by local Northwest talent including Paul Tutmarc and his wife Bonnie Guitar.
Each record was hand-pressed on colored vinyl giving them a unique look.
Many of the songs were composed by “Morrie” Morrison. Morrie was an American musician, dance instructor, impresario and entrepreneur. He was married to songwriter and musician Alice Nadine Morrison (1892-1978)
Alice played organ, piano, xylophones and drums and accompanied silent films in Anacortes, Washington-area theaters; t
Alice penned two hit songs in the early 1920s (My Love Is All For You and Love’s Ship) Sheet music for both of these songs sold over a million copies. Both were available for player pianos and recorded on RCA records. Royalties from these songs provided the money that helped Morrie and Alice start Morrison Records.
These vintage songs are perfect for period placements.
