£11.99

History of RnB Records presents a new series of double CDs highlighting the 240 or so songs most frequently performed by British beat and blues groups. Volume One concentrates on the pre-Beatles skiffle and folk era and ties this into the Blues Boom group material of the late 1960s. Volume Two spotlights Merseybeat; two further volumes concentrate on the London scene and the jazz and soul sounds that influenced the mod movement. An illustrated 28-page booklet for each set includes detailed sleeve notes by Alan Clayson.
