rhythm ‘n’ bluesin by the bayou

ACE



cd

Released: 25th Feb 2013

£11.99


uptempo, rocking blues & romping R&B from the Pelican State - a helping of Southern black music which will, at the very least, set your foot a-tapping.

South Louisiana’s entry into the R&B race stemmed from New Orleans and the distinctive sounds of Fats Domino, Smiley Lewis, Lloyd Price & Earl King but, as it spread west across the state and into the south east corner of Texas, it gathered up the influences of Zydeco, rural blues & the embryonic swamp pop to forge its own distinctive sound. Most of these recordings come from the vaults of Eddie Shuler’s Goldband label & ace's continuing dip into the recordings made by Jay Miller. 23 of the 28 tracks are previously unreleased.
