African-American music, namely blues and rhythm'n'blues, gave the hillbilly and country sound of the 30s and 40s the wings, or rather the hips, to make rock and roll a worldwide triumph. Although 'Rock'n'Roll' was also a label to introduce white audiences to the infamous 'black' Rhythm'n'Blues, its protagonists didn't stop playing their newly named music in the 50s, long before that Civil Rights Movement, popular music first built delicate bridges between the separate spheres of 'Black and White'.
With the fifth episode of 'Boss Black Rockers' again 28 songs show the vitality of rhythm'n'blues, many of which are only known to connoisseurs, including artists such as DAVE 'BABY' CORTEZ, THE RAY ELLINGTON QUARTET, EDDIE CLEARWATER, LARRY BIRDSONG , PROFESSOR LONGHAIR, THE CORVAIRS, THE GENTLEMEN, THE BLUE DOTS, SHIRLEY AND LEE and many more.
