If you think that Rock and Roll started with Bill Haley or Elvis, think again. This CD contains an unbeatable selection of late forties and early fifties Rhythm and Blues classics by mainly black American groups. Why didn't anyone ever tell me about this music before? In the two years since I bought Jiving Jamboree I've hardly stopped playing it, and I've gone on to buy CDs by many of the artists featured here. These are the forgotten roots of Rock and Roll, songs that still sound as fresh and original as the day they were recorded. Throw away all those tired compilations of fifties "classics", buy this, and get those feet tapping!
