Product Description

From the beats of Africa to the Gospel hymns of slaves, from Jazz and Swing to Be-Bop, from the Delta Blues to Rhythm & Blues and R&B, the music that has evolved out of black history and culture has been a bigger influence on today s Popular Music than any other culture around the world. In its third instalment, The Songs That Inspired series presents a celebration of the history of black popular music and takes a look at the path it has taken from Gospel to Rhythm & Blues on its musical evolution to lead towards what we now know today as Soul and R&B. Rhythm & Blues was the forefather to today s R&B Superstars such as Usher, R. Kelly and Beyonce and past Legends such as Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley, Elvis Presley and the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. Featuring twenty-eight digitally-remastered classics from some of the earliest American black Superstars of the 1940 s and 1950 s, this is the ultimate collection for music history connoisseurs. Follow us through this musical education journey which includes a rare glimpse at the very first recordings by James Brown and Jackie Wilson, all enhanced to retain the most authentic sound from the original recordings. Also featured are Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Ray Charles, Big Joe Turner, Howlin Wolf, Bo Diddley, LaVern Baker and Sam Cooke to name a few. These Legends should be forever celebrated and never forgotten, for without them, there would be no Soul, no R&B, no Hip-Hop. This CD compilation is the ultimate celebration of black popular music history and a collector s goldmine. Featuring twenty-eight digitally-remastered classics from some of the earliest American black Superstars of the 1940 s and 1950 s, this is the ultimate collection for music history connoisseurs.

Format: Audio CD
The only reason I didn't give this full marks was because of the shoddy sleeve notes/design.
This is a great compilation with some familiar tracks and artists, and some I'd never heard before. Neatly focusses on the 'blues' as much as the 'rhythm', which is always good to hear! Some proper dancefloor stompers and great down-tempo laments. I love the Sam Cooke track - straight out of Mad Men! I'd prefer to see longer sleeve notes or more of what the label has to offer, but hey - I bought it to listen to, not read. I'd definitely recommend this if you're wanting to get into this genre a bit more.
