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.
