4LP + CD + 7” + Booklet + Download Box Set

The first release on Famous Flames, The First Rock And Roll Record is an extensive collection that traces the very roots of the term rock 'n' roll, previously available on CD, and now covering 4LPs. This set gathers together the music that first mentioned the words "rock" and "roll," alongside the many styles that were infused into the genre's revolutionary sound to create the eventual marriage of everything from hillbilly soul to jazz, blues and R&B which culminated in worldwide hits including "Heartbreak Hotel" and "Rock Around The Clock." Long before Alan Freed uttered those immortal words, its formula was the stuff of much conversation. The First Rock And Roll Record continues that trend. It is not only a hefty collection but also an ongoing debating point, a central theme to a growing online discussion. The 4LP set traces the evolution of rock 'n roll music, from blues, jazz, swing, R&B, gospel, bluegrass barrelhouse boogie woogie and western swing through interlinking and overlapping scenes.
