1957-Blowing the Fuse: 31 R&B Classics That Rocked
The "Blowing The Fuse" series imaginatively compiles R&B tracks in splendid sound & detail, assembled by Canadian collector & DJ Dave "Daddy Cool" Booth and knowledgeably annotated by Hank Williams-biographer Colin Escottare. The music comes from the dawn of the Post-War R&B era in 1945 and continues through to 1960! Other labels lift photos from old books & magazines and commission quickie liner notes that tell you little or nothing and often get it wrong. This series has detailed song-by-song notes, stories behind the songs and incredible never-before-seen photos in huge booklets so big they won't fit inside a standard jewelbox. Each comes in a specially designed DigiPac. These are true, properly thought-out compilations in the spirit of Guy Stevens, Paul Oliver, Mike Leadbitter and the others who compiled groundbreaking blues/R&B LPs back in the 1960s and 1970s.
