the mercury blues 'n' rhythm story

The Mercury Blues 'N' Rhythm Story 1945-1955‘The Mercury Blues 'N' Rhythm Story 1945-1955’ é uma compilação de quarto discos que abrange a primeira década da gravadora ‘Mercury Record Corporation’ como rótulo. Cada um dos quatro discos é organizado tematicamente de acordo com a região: Midwest, Southwest, West Coast e East Coast. E cada um deles contém blues e R&B clássicos concentrando-se principalmente sobre os artistas locais e regionais tornando a compilação atraente, mas o seu principal valor é a visão concisa de um dos mais influentes rótulos da história da música. Os conteúdos são apresentados de forma cronológica, começando apropriadamente com o boogie-woogie ‘It's Just the Blues’, composição do baixista Willie Dixon. A qualidade do áudio destes oito volumes antológicos é um incentivo adicional para os colecionadores e curiosos. ‘The Mercury Blues 'N' Rhythm Story 1945-1955’ foi nomeado para um Grammy Award em 1997 de melhor álbum histórico. A ‘Mercury Record Corporation’ foi fundada em Chicago em 1945 por Irving Green, Adams Berle e Talmadge Arthur. Para gravações, eles eram uma força importante no jazz e blues, música clássica, rock and roll e música country. A Mercury tinha duas fábricas, uma em Chicago e outra em St. Louis, Missouri, com o uso de prensas automáticas que funcionavam 24 horas. Ao invés de confiar em rádios, a Mercury inicialmente se baseou em jukeboxes para promover sua música. Jukebox é um aparelho eletrônico utilizado em bares e lanchonetes que reproduz a música escolhida pelo cliente inserindo-se moedas.

Olá!
Preciso do apoio de vocês.. o CD 3 e CD 8 estão off pelo SOPA.. aparece aquela imagem de bloquei.. sabem?! ;(

Eu tinha este blog na minha lista de favoritos com várias estrelas de preferencia... mas por uma fatalidade, perdi minha máquina e por consequência perdi minhas páginas de favoritos e tragicamente esta se foi tbm..
Agora nos becos da internet procurando músicas do grande Big Bill Broonzy, encontrei essa coletânea incrível.. cheia de boas surpresas (Y)(Y)
Mas infelizmente não puder fazer download dos CD 3 e 8..

Agradeço de coração pelo ótimo trabalho \ó\

E saibam que um antigo fã voltou a segui-los
