30 Slices of Rockin', Boppin', Boogie and Blues recorded and performed for just one purpose – dancing, getting down and having a real good time. This music was made for jukeboxes and specifically for jukeboxes in African American areas of the United States be they rural or urban. The music on this collection and its companion “Juke Joint Jump – “Whole Lotta Drinkin’ on the Block” was recorded between 1944 and 1960. The urban juke joints, especially those in Chicago, were very influential in the rise of R&B across America during the 1950s and most of the big stars of blues performed regularly in these clubs. Despite the passage of time, these 30 recordings rock with a vengeance that should satisfy anyone’s dancing feet. So, just like they did back then, roll back the carpet, pour yourself a drink and just let the good times roll.
