The History of Rhythm and Blues series of CDs brings you the accidental synthesis of jazz, gospel, blues, ragtime, country, pop and Latin into a definable form of black music, which would influence pretty well all popular music from the 1950s to the present. It is the first attempt to put together a cross-label compilation showcasing the most important and influential records in the rise of Rhythm & Blues.
Includes fully illustrated 32page booklet.

One of the finest box sets released in recent years… the reissue of the year by a country mile
-Jeremy Searle, RocknReel

It’s difficult to imagine any set doing a better job of tracing the roots of R&B
-Steve Leggett, All Music Guide

Cross-label set tells story better than anything before…offers wealth of insights into song origins
-Johnny Black, Mojo
