Atlantic R& B Volume 3


  2021 Charity Shop Purchases 5 - Atlantic R&B Volume 3  1955 -1957

During my recent charity shop excursion I stumbled upon Atlantic R& B Volume 4 on the shelves .When I opened it to check it contained the CD for Volume 3. I thought about putting it back but decided against it. About 15 minutes later on one of the the other shelves I found Volume 3 and yes it contained the CD for Volume 4.

Result. A quick swop round and they were added to the pile. I only had Volume 1 before but had a copy of Volume 3 which I featured back in August 2016

Covering the period 1955-57 it features  the likes of Ray Charles, the Drifters and a host of others across the 28 tracks.

Today you're getting the Blues of Joe Turner , the Doo wop of The Robins and the risque Soul of Ruth Brown.

Volume 4 next week

Joe Turner -Flip,Flop and Fly

The Robins - Smokey Joe's Cafe

Ruth Brown -Lucky Lips


  1. I thought I had this so I checked "atlantic" on the spreadsheet. First up, a Rod Stewart album, then vol 5 of this series, then vol 3, then portuguese atlantic soul and funk.

  2. I have the 8 disc Atlantic R&B box set. I thought this was it with a different cover, but I just checked my volume 3. Mine is 1955-1958. Many of the acts are the same, but the songs are different choices. Lucky Lips is one there but not Flip, Flop and Fly or Smokey Joe's Cafe. I may need this other series. Will investigate. Thanks.
