Everything and more....,
This review is from: The History of Rhythm & Blues (Audio CD)
This set is everything and more that the reviews above say. It is obviously a labour of love and is intelligently programmed. The sound quality is as good as one could hope for and it's far more than "a beginners guide".
Volume 2 is to be wished for asap.
Slight problem getting the discs out of the box and returning them so then stay put. This set will doubtless be bought by over, rather than under 50s (although, of course it should be purchased by anyone with any taste), so arthritic fingers will be tested. Perhaps Vol 2 could be a complete long box as opposed to this three quarter size one where the discs overlap - but this does in no way take away from the magnificence of this set.
Cool pics of artistes and original labels in the book which should be housed in a pocket rather than glued in, as it soon becomes detatched.
Never underestimate the power of the independent record label and producer. They recorded some of the greatest music ever and now new compilers are making them available to one and all.
