Afro-American music, namely blues and rhythm‘nblues, gave the hillbilly and country sound of the 30s and 40s the wings, or rather the hips, to make rock'n‘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 built the first delicate bridges between the separate spheres of "Black and White".
With the eighth "Boss Black Rockers" episode again 28 songs show the vitality of rhythm'n'blues, many of which are only known to connoisseurs, including artists such as JACKIE WILSON, EDDIE HOLLAND, THE VERSATONES, SCREAMIN 'JOE NEAL, LITTLE JUNIOR PARKER, BOBBY FREEMAN, THE DUSTERS, JOHNNY 'GUITAR' WATSON and many more.
