Mighty Instrumentals R&B-Style 1962

Rhythm and Blues Records



2cd

Released: 8th Dec 2017

£11.99


this 1962 retrospective serves up 58 R&B scorchers with rhythm aplenty, including some names you know very well and some you’ve yet to become very friendly with indeed.

1962 was the peak year for hit records, instrumental-style, with no less than 123 discs scoring on the American pop charts. There wasn’t much in the hit parade to interest R&B fans though, apart from King Curtis’ ‘Soul Twist’, Booker T. & The MG's ‘Green Onions’ and James Brown’s ‘Night Train’, but that’s where this sizzling compilation comes in. So, what was new in 1962? A bit of surf, a bit of funk, a brand new rhythm on Boogie Twist, slinky organ groovers, uptown dancers and late night smoochers for teenagers to dance to.
