Rhythm and Blues was probably created in 1940, with Louis Jordan as the first artist to make the classical blues more rhythmic. The ambiguous lyrics and the dynamic rhythm and blues sound make it hard to sit still. Chuck Berry heated people up back then so that no one stayed in their seats.

A simple sitting concert was almost impossible. In 1950, an influence of rock and roll was discovered in rhythm and blues, which became clear, for example, through Little Richard. The legendary R&B albums will probably remain on the record shelf or CD shelf forever. We at Bear Family Records want to make sure that the dynamic sound of rhythm and blues lives on forever, for example with our CD album series Blowing The Fuse. But you will also find many CDs or vinyl records from other record labels that release artists such as Wyonnie Harris, Slim Harpo, Lazy Lester or Bo Diddley on CDs or vinyl records.
