Putumayo's Rhythm & Blue CD review and giveaway

Putumayo World Music is one of the most recognized record labels in the world. Rhythm & Blues is composed of wonderful legends and rising stars working in the retro R&B I love R&B and the cover is pretty special in my opinion as well.

Those featured on the Rhythm & Blue CD are Lavelle White • James Hunter • Cracked Ice • The Quantic Soul Orchestra featuring Kabir • The Emotions • Sam Moore, Keb’ Mo’ and Angie Stone • Catherine Russell • Ruthie Foster • Snooks Eaglin • Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings • Rockie Charles • Irma Thomas with Henry Butler

Have you ever noticed that each generation has its own special music and the generation after desires the sounds of old? The 60s and 70s saw R&B artist such as The Four Tops, Otis Redding, and The Supremes. Today many of the songs created and shared in those days have become memories for fans. There are those special songs that even our young one in this generation hear and like.

As a teen i listened to music that my mother did not respect or like. Her generation had the same type of music as well. R&B music from the 1950s branched off of the rugged roots of blues and gospel music. New Orleans the birthplace of R&B saw famous stars such as Snooks Eaglin, Irma Thomas and Rockie Charles.

Putumayo's Rhythm & Blue CD shares the history of R&B through music. American Blues, New ORleans, Women of Jazz, and Mississippi Blues are all cherished and shared on this great CD

    A song that holds a great memory is More than Words, which I used to sing with my best friend when I was a kid. Every time I hear it, I think of him.
