1960 was the year that Instrumentals hit the charts in a big way with guitar or sax-led rockers and slinky organ groovers. Here are the discs that teenagers wanted to hear in the juke joints: exciting, uptempo stompers with catchy, melodic riffs, along with slow, soulful, down home blues. This compilation throws the spotlight on instrumentals by artists more widely associated with vocals, along with more obscure artists who may only have had one or two releases to their name.

…absolutely cracking double CD of 57 superb R&B instrumentals from a vintage year…we’ve just finished whipping through it and it’s going on again in 5 minutes! More please! New Gandy Dancer
