How Britain Got The Blues Vol 3 (How London Got The Blues)
[Britain CD]
 

I hope they don t think we re a rock and roll outfit, Mick Jagger declared to Jazz News in 1962. He was speaking to and for a growing number of R&B and trad jazz aficionados among the more discerning British youth who were seeking musical authenticity and distancing themselves from the teenybop crowd, thanks to music imported by their elders in the folk movement. Other routes into these new genres were opened as some teenagers learned the guitar during the skiffle craze, others listened to the US military s radio which played R&B for the black soldiers stationed around London and some, inspired by Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly, wanted to dig deeper to discover the sources of their heroes inspiration. What brought them together around London was their youth, their money and their social status. Unlike musicians in industrial cities like Liverpool, Newcastle or Belfast, most of these kids came from comparatively comfortable middle-class backgrounds they were well educated and they didn t have to bring home the bacon at the age of 16, but they did have a disposable income to spend on records, guitars and amplifiers. 1962-1964 was the boom period for the London R&B scene and British music has never looked back. This compilation presents the most influential blues records that were adopted by artists performing at this exciting time.
