Dig City Records

ALL 10 volumes of Boss Black Rockers vinyl edition. Limited availability, 140 black Rock & Roll songs. 1 of 20 different slipmats incl. With each LP. Dear Cats and Kittens, dig this cool array of killer black rock and roll from the "Golden Age" of American music. So many similar projects were devoted through the years to white rock and rollers (even the most obscure and unknown) and very little to the people that not only "originated" this music and played it long before white musicians started to fool around with it. They also continued to play it when black "Rhythm and Blues" music was suddenly re-named "Rock and Roll" to appeal to a wider white audience in segregated America and became a multi-racial genre in the mid-1950s. Some tunes on "Boss Black Rockers" are pretty well-known and some are pretty obscure - even if a lot of those were actually pretty popular in the 1950s among both black and white Rock and Roll fans. Most of the artists in this series were actually household names in the "Rock and Roll World" of the '50s and early '60s. I sure hope with this great series to finally set things straight. After the massive success of this series on CD, we finally decided to release "Boss Black Rockers" on vinyl LPs, cherry-picking the best songs (a very hard task) from each and every volume. Dig it!
