Putumayo Rhythm & Blues CD Review & GIVEAWAY! *Closed*

Congratulations to 'mean green mom' with comment #13!

I'll admit that I don't typically listen to Rhythm & Blues. I would have never considered it my type of music, but after listening to this CD I think it is something that I could really get used to. The Putumayo Rhythm & Blues CD is really easy listening. It's soothing, relaxing and just plain.....nice.

Here is what Putumayo has to say about their newest release:

"Putumayo’s newest release, Rhythm & Blues, features first generation soul legends and rising stars of the retro R&B revival. It’s the label’s first album exclusively dedicated to the genre. The 60s and 70s rhythm and blues of The Four Tops, Otis Redding and The Supremes, among others, became a global phenomenon and has inspired a new generation of artists who are reviving the classic soul sound.

Reaching mainstream popularity in the 1950s, rhythm and blues sprung from the rugged roots of blues and gospel music, pairing soulful vocals with pop sensibilities. While in recent years R&B has become more closely associated with rap and hip hop, legends and young artists are recreating the sound and mood of the genre’s glory days."

Putumayo Rhythm & Blues was just released February 9, 2010 and currently sells for $14.98 at their site if you are interested in purchasing this soulful music.
