Various – Boss Black Rockers Vol. 8 – Cool It
They also continued to play it when black Rhythm and Blues music was suddenly re-named Rock and Roll to appeal to a wider white audience in segregated America and became a multi-racial genre in the mid-1950s. Some tunes are pretty well-known but the vast majority are not. I'm pretty sure you have never heard a lot of the tracks included here - even if a lot of them were pretty popular in the 1950s among both black and white Rock and Roll fans. Most of the artists in this new collection were actually household names in the Rock and Roll World of the 50s and early 60s. I sure hope this new series of 10 complimentary volumes will finally set things straight. Dig it!
