Western Swing was the most eclectic form of country music and in its free-wheeling diversity, it set the stage for rock & roll. Based in traditional string band music, Western swing also incorporated traditional pop melodies, jazz improvisation, blues and folk, creating a wildly entertaining and eclectic form of American music. Bob Wills and Milton Brown popularized the genre in the '30s, and Wills became known as the father of the genre, since he remained popular for several decades, during which he had a remarkable string of hit singles. This Properbox follows on from our set of several years ago ("Doughboys, Playboys & Cowboys" Properbox6), expanding on that set to look at the work of many more of the artists working in the genre from the '30s to the '50s, and presented with the same attention to detail with comprehensive liner notes, a discography and 4CDs of digitally remastered music.
