5.0 out of 5 stars Giving it away, 22 April 2013
This review is from: The History of Rhythm and Blues 1942 - 1952 (Audio CD)
Hardly matter how many times you have this stuff you hear it in a different order and its music which is the music of life.Whats more you get a 48 page book though unfortuantely no magnifying glass but whatever its worth the money for the book.
I've no idea what this new stuff is they call R & B and I don't want to find out but this is what its all about what was called rhythm and blues before it was soul-which is what the 3rd and final volume is
At the time little of what's on here was issued in the U K and it began to come out retrospectively with the U K finally catching on in the mid 60s when all the experts came out of the woodwork and started writing books and valuing records
I should point out that the song on CD 3 listed as Walk Right In is NOT the Rooftop Singers hit but is really called Walk Rght In Walk Right Out and on the same disc the Hal Singer song called Rock Around The Clock is NOT the Haley hit-this came much earlier.And there's a case for Hal Singer to be one of the ones who made the first rock'n'roll record

5.0 out of 5 stars 24 carat gold rhythm and blues, 23 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The History of Rhythm and Blues 1942 - 1952 (Audio CD)
This really is one of the very best compilations on the market and as readers will see this selection has garnered nothing but rave reviews. There may be a lot of artists that you have never heard of on this CD but there is not a dud track on the album.

The booklet that comes with the set is both informative and entertaining. If you want to hear samples of the tracks go to the Rhythm and Blues Records web site and you will find links for all of their releases.

I can't recommend this set too highly. Buy it!
