Mighty Instrumentals R&B-Style 1956 - 1957

Rhythm and Blues Records



4cd

Released: 17th May 2019

£21.99


This set brings together the finest R&B instrumentals recorded between 1956 and 1957, putting the spotlight both on long-forgotten records by established artists and fabulous obscurities by long-forgotten ones! It’s a cracking compilation from start to finish: Mid-West electric blues, Southern swamp rock, spicy New Orleans rhythms, sophisticated West-Coast productions and East Coast city blues, dominated by guitarists and saxophonists but interspersed with a few organists, accordionists, pianists, harmonicists and even a unitarist.

All in all, 120 mighty instrumental stompers from 1956-57, R&B-style. Glorious stuff!
