...RHYTHM & BLUES (THE PRE-WAR YEARS 1025-1942)' - Rhythm & Blues has become one of the most identifiable musical art-forms of the 20th Century, with an enormous influence on the development of both the sound and attitude of modern music. The History of Rhythm and Blues series of CDs investigates the accidental synthesis of jazz, gospel, blues, ragtime, latin, country, and pop into a definable form of black music, which in turn would influence pretty well all popular music from the 1950s to the present. This condensed single disc version of the 4CD box set contains 25 of the most representative tracks with an analysis of relevant stylistic and musical innovations. It is the first attempt to chronicle from a historical perspective, the rise of Rhythm & Blues by showcasing its most important and influential records. The end of the 19th century was a period of major social upheaval for the black population of the southern states. One of the initial by-products of the abolition of slavery was a huge number of itinerant workers. Musicians who had previously been maintained on plantations were no longer required. Furthermore, the restrictions brought about by the introduction of segregation in 1896 and the ensuing Jim Crow laws, indirectly led to a cultural revolution within Afro-American society. New forms of music all arose at this time: spirituals, ragtime, barrelhouse, jazz, black ballad form. Over the years, these distinctive sounds would come to merge into a recognisably new musical style. Country blues, spirituals, hokum, boogie-woogie, jazz, gospel, after hours, urban blues, swing and jive.
