Rhythm And Blues - The CD album series 'Blowing The Fuse'

Blowing The Fuse - our Rhythm and Blues CD series achieves a new peak in our high quality Rhythm & Blues reissue standards! Critics cheer that there's finally a comprehensive CD album series representing the early Rhythm & Blues (R&B)! ‘Blowing The Fuse’ starts with the year Zero, the end of World War II in 1945 and ends with the year of 1960. The concept came from Dave ‘Daddy Cool’ Booth, an experienced DJ who exactly knows how to compile such a program. He owns a huge collection of records and he checked nearly every issue of the ‘Billboard’ magazine throughout the years covered in this series. Therefore he has chosen not only the mega hits but tons of rarities too, including many tracks that never appeared on CD before.

Dave 'Daddy Cool' Booth & Colin Escott

The 'Blowing The Fuse' CD series wins over with its sound and its bona fide details. It covers the most important years of black Rhythm & Blues and its part in the evolution of Pop music. Canadian DJ legend and collector Dave 'Daddy Cool' Booth compiled the whole series the most skilled way and the capable liner notes are written by the Hank Williams biograph Colin Escott. Every volume is packed with songs and 72 page booklet with never seen photos, tons of informations and stories behind the music. 16 CD albums with the best in sound quality are telling the story of Rhythm & Blues!    

Now Dig This!

“This series has been simply breathtaking. From records of black combos doing their night club numbers to commercial artefacts aimed at the teenage dollar, music had changed remarkable from 1945 to 1960, and this series documents it with startling clarity, both historically and sonically. These last five volumes will probably be of most interest to most, and I recommended all of them to you (and the other eleven).”    - Now Dig This                        

All Music Guide

“Of course, it's going backwards now: today everyone picks rock the iPod way, and the culture for that stuff has just blown away like tumbleweed. Nonetheless, anybody interested in the greatest singles that Rock'n'Roll, R&B, Blues, and Soul had to offer in the 50' s and early 60's needs to scope out these platters from Bear Family: This baby has 31 cuts, all of them burners!”    - All Music Guide
