    It's astounding to realize how much of the '40s and '50s most vital R&B was recorded for the King label. This comprehensive four-disc box presents what amounts to a guided tour of post-war R&B. Equal parts history lesson and dance party, THE KING R&B BOX SET documents the various phases of R&B, from blues leanings to proto-R&B to doo wop to hardcore blues and funk. Packaged with a booklet containing extensive, informative liner notes, this set is an exhaustive account of a uniquely American art form. Highlights abound, including Wynonie Harris' whimsical "Bloodshot Eyes," Johnny "Guitar" Watson's lascivious blues classic "Gangster of Love" and Hank Ballard's once-scandalous "Work With me Annie" (which inspired the female answer song "Roll With Me Henry"). And if you're interesting in digging up the roots of rock & roll, look no further than the aforementioned Mr. Harris seminal take on "Good Rockin' Tonight."
