New musical styles don't appear overnight. Rock and roll didn't explode out of a vacuum and Elvis wasn't the Big Bang (more like the start of rapid inflationary expansion). Before Elvis, there was a massively diverse R&B scene in the States, which today's record buyer is currently enjoying the discovery of through a wealth of compilations and reissue 7"s. In turn, this music was a development of the sound that came before it, with many of the key players having been instrumental in the swing bands of the '30s and early '40s. Savage Rhythm is a compilation of this fantastic music, documenting the direct lineage from the jazz and swing of the '30s through to a more R&B-ready sound of the early '40s, signposting the way ahead for what was to become jump blues and eventually rock and roll. Compiled by Brighton (UK) DJ, music-lover and vinyl junkie Shamblin Sexton, Savage Rhythm is put together to make the party swing hard. As much a ticket to the good times as a history lesson, Savage Rhythm delivers both with urbane style and swagger. With original artwork by graphic designer Chris Sick, this compilation will be a must-have for the vintage kids & R&B heads, as well as the electro-swing DJs and club-goers. Savage Rhythm swings a hefty punch of serious, quality music that is as vibrant and essentially vital today as it was 75 years ago.
