• a rhythm & blues chronology 6 (1938-39)  (4 CD set, £19.95)

    Before 1949, the American record industry had marketed all Black Music - blues, jazz, jive and sacred under the catch-all phrase, race music. After the end of World War II, an increasing sensitivity to racism generated the need for a new term which emerged from a renaming of Billboard’s Best Selling Retail Rhythm And Blues Records. Volume Six in this series looks at these various strands of 1930s music which coalesced into Rhythm & Blues. With the addition of elements of country and pop, this collection demonstrates the breadth of new forms which grew out of the fusion of these styles. Tracks : Disc 1: 1.
