Various - Groove Records: Rockin' The Groove

1-CD Digipak (4-plated) with 64-page booklet, 35 tracks. Total playing time approx. 84 minutes.

  • Two single CDs devoted to a great, unknown story in 1950s R&B history!
  • All titles remastered from original vault tapes!
  • Artists include Zilla Mays, Roy Gaines, the Du Droppers, George Benson (Yes! That George Benson), Sonny Terry, Champion Jack Dupree, and many more!
  • Backing musicians include the incredible Mickey Baker, as well as hot bandleaders Paul Williams and Buddy Lucas!

Watching the success of indie labels like Atlantic, Chess, Specialty, Imperial, and others, industry giant RCA decided to re-enter the Rhythm & Blues field. RCA had dominated blues recording during the late 1920s and '30s, but the company dropped most of its blues artists, along with many of its country artists, during wartime raw materials rationing. In 1954, RCA decided to get back in the game, hiring A&R man Danny Kessler away from Columbia's OKeh label. The experiment ended in 1957 after notching up just one major hit, Mickey & Sylvia's Love Is Strange.

Lack of hits didn't mean lack of great music. Recording in New York and in the South, Groove drew on a wide range of artists from top-drawer vocal groups like the Du Droppers to future smooth jazz star George Benson to blues guitar star Roy Gaines to west coast jazz Shorty Rogers calling himself Highpockets Henderson to classic New Orleans barrelhouse pianist Champion Jack Dupree. Even country blues legend Sonny Terry was on the roster. Groove releases were filled out with some great unknowns as well as singular artists like Bertice Reading, who began in R&B but went on to become a cabaret star in England. The bands were always top-notch, including session genius Mickey Baker as well as bandleaders Paul Williams and Buddy Lucas.
In an exclusive deal with RCA/Sony in New York, Bear Family acquired access to the entire Groove catalog, restoring the masters to pristine sound and finding rare and unpublished photos. Award-winning R&B historian Bill Dahl wrote the extensive essays.

Kompliment!

Jazzthetik 5-6/16 "Vintage-Aufnahmen in erstaunlicher Tonqualität: Kein Knacken, Knistern, Rauschen. Kompliment für die Ttielauswahl und die Booklets!"

 
From: BF Presse 2016-04-12 10:48:37

Obskure Hörbeispiele

Oldiemarkt 4/16 "Diese CD besticht durch obskure Hörbeispiele. Insgesamt ist die Qualität des Materials sehr hoch und geht derart ab, dass der Rock 'n' Roll in der Nähe ist."

 
From: BF Presse 2016-03-22 12:02:49

Einsame Spitze

Good Times 2(16 "Wie von Bear Family gewohnt, ist die Musik nur die halbe Miete. Was Bill Dahl in seinen ausführlichen Liner Notes abliefern, ist einsame Spitze. Tiefer kann man in so ein Thema kaum einsteigen."

 
From: BF Presse 2016-03-01 09:43:40

Großartige Ausgrabung

Plärrer 3/16 "Wieder einmal hat das umtriebige Team von Bear Family ein beinahe vergessenes Label der R & B-Geschichte ausfindig gemacht und in die Gegenwart zurückgeholt."

 
From: SkinnyDinamo 2016-02-09 00:22:46

Klasse!

Klasse, dass sich Bear Family nun auch dem Rhythm And Blues zuwendet :)

Diese CD und ihr Compagnon "Groovin' The Blues" sind im Klang als auch im Begleittext exzellent. Schön illustriertes Booklet mit Sessiondetails.

Die fast 30 unveröffentlichten Titel beider CDs sind für meinen Geschmack allerdings zuviel.

Die Digipacks von Bear Family gefallen mir eigentlich schon gut. Was mir aber schon seit längerem nicht gefällt, sind die nicht (mehr) herausnehmbaren Booklets. Und bei diesen beiden CD-Heftchen wurde der Text zu eng am Bund gesetzt, und macht das Lesen daher etwas anstrengend.

Ich würde es toll finden, wenn auch andere R&B-Label auf diese Art und Weise gewürdigt werden könnten (Mercury z.B. wäre super, oder Federal-Deluxe; Chess-Checker, Duke-Peacock; Savoy etc).
