Blues & Rhythm !

In February of 1952, the Bihari brothers who originated Modern Music Records (later Modern) and also would launch RPM, Meteor, Flair, and Kent labels, started a new label that would concentrate on recording blues tunes from the deep south = Blues & Rhythm Records. Among the original musicians signed to the label are Charles Booker and Brother Bell.
Suddenly in October of 1952 the Biharis decide to shut down Blues & Rhythm Records and concentrate on their Modern and RPM labels.
And so ends the short history of another small independent label !

Charley Booker:
* Charlie's Boogie Woogie *
* Rabbit Blues *

Charley Booker:
* Whole Heap Of Mama *
* If You Feel Froggish *
