Unavailable for over 20 years, ‘In The Beginning There Was Rhythm’ was Soul Jazz Records’ first foray into post-punk and punk-funk in the UK, capturing the groundbreaking, seminal groups that crossed the divide of punk and dance music for the first time.

“‘In The Beginning…’ is essential missing-link history - and body-rockin’ fun” - The Guardian. “‘In The Beginning…’ doesn’t have a single limp tune. It’ll amaze new listeners and give old ones some hard-to-find tracks. Buy it.” - Pitchfork. “There’s no denying that ‘In the Beginning There Was Rhythm’ is a great gateway into this expansive, fruitful, trailblazing era.” - All Music
