"Great Rock ‘n Roll Intrumentals - Just About As Good As It Gets"

A new genre in the “Just about as good as it gets!” series, this 2CD highlights the many great Rock ‘n’ Roll instrumentals which emerged from the U.S. along with the vocal hits. The Instrumental has always been popular and thrived especially with the advent of the cylinder player and the Victrola. With the coming of jazz on record, that popularity soared, as, for the 1st time, black people had dance music that they could relate too. The coming of swing in the 1930's took instrumental music to another level again. Not only were white and black teenagers buying records, as well as going out dancing, the bands were being received with fanatic adulation at their stage shows. This huge enthusiasm was contagious and soon spread worldwide, especially to Britain, where local dance and jazz bands soon picked up on what the Americans were doing. After World War II, many of the big swing bands had to cut down their personnel, as costs were too high, but those smaller combos churned out a stream of instrumental records, really hitting the heights with the coming of rock 'n' roll. Aside from the jazzmen, the early days of rhythm & blues played a large part in popularising instrumental music, as will be seen wandering through this fascinating collection.
