• Charles BROWN - The Cool Cool Sounds of Charles Brown - All-Time Classic Hits and R&B Chart Hits 1945-1961

There are many blues stars but only some of them are legends and Charles Brown falls firmly into the legend category.

50 fantastic tracks across 2CDs featuring fifteen of his billboard R&B chart hits between 1945-1961, including: 'So Long', 'More Than You Know' and 'Merry Christmas Baby' which was revived by Elvis Presley. Plus let's not forget 'Driftin' Blues' which has been recorded time and time again by many artists.

On top of his game for more than half a century his influence is still felt since these classic recordings were made and a certain Ray Charles owes pretty much his entire early career to this man.
