The AMERICA collection provides a glimpse into 20th century American music. With Gospel, Blues and Jazz, black people gave the world the foundations on which most types of Western music - Rhythm & Blues, Soul Music, Rock 'n' Roll, Funk, Rap - were to be built.

Each of our (2 CD) anthologies gets to the very heart of these genres and explains their origins, their rationale and their evolution.
