Various Artists - The R&B Scene (2xLP Vinyl)

  • Sale
  • Regular price €27,00
Tax included.

This is another in this truly impressive series of Decca/Deram released tracks from the mid-sixties. This time it deals with the "r&b"/upbeat blues rock scene. While there are crossover with "The Blues Scene", the material on here is pretty much all fast-paced, energetic rocking Rhythm and Blues,


This set, one of eight under the "Decca Originals" title, is another good overview of a number of bands playing, by and large, tough r&b in England in the mid 60's. This could be considered the companion to "The Blues Scene" in this series. Decca Records signed many good to fine artists, and this compilation showcases many of the best. Artists like THE BIRDS, COPS 'N' ROBBERS, Dave Berry, Lulu & THE LUVVERS, John Mayall, Rod Stewart, THE BIG THREE, and so on-are all here with some fine tracks.
As the years go by, a lot of this music is in danger of being pushed aside and/or forgotten. And that would be a shame, because the various musical genres that came out of England during a relatively short period of time (a few years), is still important, still vital, and exciting. The eight releases in this series still available, serve as widows into an era when record labels were willing to record this great music. And for very little money this set (and the others)are great value for money. This compilation can sit alongside other single disc collections of similar music with no problem. Great music, great sound, and a low low price make this a "no brainer" purchase.
