VA - Race Records 1942-1955 ~ Black Rock Music Forbidden On U.S. Radio (2015)


Blues, R&B, Rock'n'Roll | Mp3 VBR kbps | 3 CD | 416 Mb

R&B, jump blues, and even early rock and roll – all served up here in a wonderful collection of vintage work from the postwar years! The collection focuses on the underground of recordings issued as "race records" back in the day – material that had an undeniable impact on bigger groups of the 60s and 70s, but which were often banned from radio at the time – yet circulated strongly through word of mouth and youthful excitement about the new sounds! And although there's plenty of collections from this time on the market, this one is especially well done – with lots of tracks that we don't see elsewhere, nestled alongside a few familiar favorites – all presented with notes in both English and French, and a whopping 77 tracks on 3CDs. Titles include "Hambone" by Red Saunders, "Give It Up" by Doc Pomus with Bill Doggett, "Moondog Mantinee" by Alan freed, "BearCat" by Rufus Thomas, "Rock A Beatin Boogie" by The Treniers, "Rock & Roll" by Wild Bill Moore, "Rock Around The Clock" by Hal Singer, "Sausage Rock" by Doc Sausage & His Mad Lads, "Rock & Roll" by Arleen Talley & LaVerne Ray, "Get Rich Quick" by Little Richard, "Rock This Morning" by Jesse Allen & James Gilchrist, "Rock My Soul" by Mr Google Eyes, "Rock Savoy Rock" by Andrew Tibbs, "We Love To Boogie" by Freddie Strong, and "A Good Rockin Daddy" by Ray Snead.
