  • Various - Walk Right In-The Secret History Of Rock`n`Roll Vol 1 (Käytetty CD)


    The first volume of this superb four-disc series, subtitled The Secret History of Rock & Roll, expands on the conventional formula that blues plus country equals rock & roll. Drawing from the RCA Victor-Bluebird vaults, it offers 25 recordings (many of them seminal, all of them choice) that predate the urban blues explosion and inform the rock music that followed. The disc-opening Catfish Blues” by Robert Petway became ”Rolling Stone” once Muddy Waters electrified it, while ”Baby, Please Don’t Go”–initially recorded by Big Joe Williams with only washboard and one-string fiddle for support–is a blues-rock staple. Other highlights extend from Leadbelly’s chain-gang chant ”Ham an’ Eggs” and folk standard ”The Midnight Special” to the formative country of the Carter Family’s ”Worried Man Blues.” Also noteworthy are an exquisite ”Beale Street Blues,” with Alberta Hunter backed only by Fats Waller on organ, and the operatic majesty of Paul Robeson’s ”Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child.” The sound quality is as superior as the selection, with digital technology eliminating the hisses and crackles so common in archival reissues, without any loss of fidelity. -Don McLeese”
