Various - The Last Shout! Twilight Of The Blues Shouters 1954-1962 – 2LP (LP)

29,00

The forgotten superheroes of 20th-century black music, the leather-lunged blues shouters dominated the US nightclub stages and R&B charts for half-a-dozen years or so following World War II, before being side-lined by the buoyant rock ’n’ roll storm in the early 1950s. Still considered a force with which to be reckoned in the US music industry of the mid-fifties, and still at the height of their vocal prowess, many of the biggest stars were granted one or two final shots to save their flagging recording careers during rock ’n’ roll’s heyday – their “Last Shout”. This set endeavours to document the twilight of that proud musical genre and resurrect the ultimate releases from some of the great voices of R&B. This 32 track 2LP version features prime cuts from the 97 track 3CD collection; the best of the bellowing, yelling and caterwauling as compiled and annotated by R&B authority Dave Penny.

The international blues boom of the 1960s – informed by the white Europeans’ predilection for more unsophisticated rural country blues and urban down-home blues, coupled with black America’s progressive, wholesale acceptance of gospel-steeped soul and funk – served to entomb the art of the jump blues shouter further and to remove the memory of an exciting musical form from general consciousness, until it began to be exhumed decades later.Featuring singers famous and obscure, The Last Shout! serves the best of the final commercial recordings issued for the African-American R&B market. When they were no longer commercially viable, some, like Joe Turner and Jimmy Witherspoon, were able to make a comfortable living on the jazz circuit, others pursued alternative careers in comedy, preaching, composing or acting, yet others remained tragically determined; trying to maintain an ever-dwindling touring schedule on the chittlin’ circuit and drinking themselves into an early grave. Here, Fantastic Voyage offers a snapshot of time in the history of black music, when the undiminished power of the classic blues shouters was married to the urgent rhythms of the rock ’n’ roll era, resulting in some very special music indeed!
