MIGHTY INSTRUMENTALS R&B STYLE 1956-1957-1958-1959 8CD set
This set of 8CDs brings together the finest R&B instrumentals recorded between 1956 and 1959, 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: Southern swamp rock, Mid-West electric blues, Latin groovers, spicy New Orleans rhythms, sophisticated West-Coast productions, slinky organ stompers 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, 240 mighty instrumental stompers from 1956-57, R&B-style. Glorious stuff!
