Editorial Reviews

Rhythm and Blues (now called R&B) can trace its roots directly from Jazz, Ragtime, and the old black Gospel and Spiritual standards. The narrative form and rich beat of these forms also form the basis for today's RAP and Hip-Hop. The emphasis on rhythm and storytelling has always been part of what made this music popular reflecting the sum of the Black experience in a way that is truly unique and American. The America's Music Legacy series was recorded 1983-85 and produced by 20TH Century Home Entertainment. It showcases the musical legends performing the songs that continue to attract and entice the whole world, because they truly are the best of all that is America. The program is hosted by Billy Eckstine and features performances by Sam Moore, Sheer Delight, Brook Benton, Scatman Crothers, Mary Wells, and many more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this DVD July 14, 2014
Loved this DVD, and hearing Mr. Billy Ekcstine perform again was wonderful, he still has that wonderful voice. The rest of the DVD was so enjoyable, I'm happy that I found it.
