Shattered Dreams Funky Blues 1967-78 / Various [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
2011 collection. As Soul became the music of black America in the late '60s, the Blues had to adapt to survive. For those who could, playing to the white Rock crowd was an attractive option, but in hundreds of sweaty, run-down clubs in cities and towns across the U.S., an older urban black audience was still there to be entertained. Blues musicians made a few concessions to the age, added Funk licks and a few Soul screams and created some seriously good music, which has often been ignored by Blues scholars. Shattered Dreams is a celebration of that period. 21 tracks. Beat Goes Public.
