Limited and numbered edition of 1,500 copies.

Presenting  the rise of rhythm 'n' blues in Washington, D.C. - music from the swing era, classic doo-wop of the 1940s and 1950s, rocking rhythm & blues, rock & roll and soul of the early 1960s.

Classics such as Love Potion No. 9 (The Clovers), Wedding Bells (The Senators) and Georgianna (Lloyd Price), supplemented by local hits, long-forgotten obscure tunes and sought-after rarities.

A comprehensive 352-page hardcover LP-sized book by researcher Jay Bruder documents the exciting history of the Washington music scene from the 1940s to the 1960s - with background information on the African-American press, club scene, and nightlife with its movers and shakers, based on years of research and interviews with surviving eyewitnesses.

Hundreds of long out of print and hard to find recordings drawn from the best available sources, carefully sequenced in order of release, form a comprehensive review of the entire recording scene. This is not just a greatest hits collection.

In-depth biographies draw attention to long overlooked artists such as The Griffin Brothers with Margie Day, Delores "Baby Dee" Spriggs, Billy Fair, TNT Tribble, Frank Motley Jr., The Three of Us Trio, The Crawford Brothers, Sam Hawkins, and Phil Flowers.

The story of Quality Records shows how this Washington-based label started by Ahment Ertegun, Herb Abramson, and Max Silverman in 1946 led to the launch of Atlantic Records two years later.

The story of Lillian Claiborne and her DC Records operation illustrates her role sustaining Washington's recording scene from 1947 through the early 1970s.

Pioneering vocal group recordings by The Progressive Four, The Cap-Tans, The Clovers, The Four Dots, and The Heartbreakers illustrate Washington's early contribution to the rise of R&B vocal groups.
