Our Overview.

Keith Richards said ”If you don’t know the blues...there’s no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock and roll or any other form of popular music.” And on this latest instalment from Jasmine ’Stirring Up Some Blues - The Original Sound Of UK Club Land’ explores the “club beat” of the blues.

The Blues evolved in the late eighteen hundreds from a melting pot of homespun black music performed to small audiences across the American South. It wasn't until the 1920s, after the migration to cities such as Chicago that the genre was christened the Blues, a term initiated by the record industry, designed to appeal to a black audience.

”Blues is a tonic for whatever ails you. I could play the blues and then not be blue anymore.” B. B. King.

The blues continues to evolve today and, like its original counterparts, gospel, jazz and R&B, it plays a leading role in popular music, the roots of which can be heard in our unique 25-track compilation.
