Product Description:

2010 four CD set, a revamped and remastered version of the now deleted 2007 release. Rhythm & Blues was one of the most identifiable musical art forms of the 20th Century, with an enormous influence on the development of both the sound and attitude of modern music. The History of Rhythm and Blues series of CDs investigates the accidental synthesis of Jazz, Gospel, Blues, Ragtime, Country, Pop and Latin into a definable form of black music, which in turn would influence pretty well all popular music from the 1950s to the present. This set is the first attempt to put together a comprehensive cross-label compilation showcasing the most important and influential records in the rise of Rhythm & Blues. An illustrated 32 page booklet includes detailed sleeve notes with track-by-track commentary on each song. 106 tracks.
