Product Description & Reviews

Mercury's monster eight-disc R&B box is impressively annotated, remastered, and packaged. The original paintings of R&B artists by Matt O'Neill that grace the cover of each two-disc jewelbox are especially good. Although Mercury's slate of artists was never as big or as influential as the Atlantic R&B roster, it did include middle-level stars like T-Bone Walker, Dinah Washington, Big Bill Broonzy, Sunnyland Slim, Memphis Slim, Robert Lockwood Jr., Jay McShann, Lightnin' Hopkins, Johnny Otis, and Eddie "Mr. Cleanhead" Vinson, all of whom are represented here. Blues 'n' Rhythm Story devotes two discs to four regions--the Midwest, Southwest, West Coast, and East Coast. Featured artists range from the acclaimed (Professor Longhair, Lightnin' Hopkins, Jay McShann, "Cleanhead" Vinson, Dinah Washington) to the wayward. Nevertheless, the overall quality is remarkably high. The 88-page booklet helps put the music in perspective. This isn't a modest investment for a collector, but it's certainly among the elite of the R&B collections yet assembled. --Steven Stolder
