This video breaks the norm from the oft-traveled path that connect Mississippi Delta with Chicago. The different road Legends of Rhythm and Blues Video take is the migratory path that runs from the South to the California coast. This is where work opportunities were in abundance during world war II. The video shows that R&B spread as a result of people liking its jazzy instrumentation and strong gospel flavor, where eventually it became a fundamental factor of rock ‘n’ roll.
Performers featured in the Legends of Rhythm and blues Video include Joe Liggins, Charles Brown, Big Mama Thomas, Margie Evans, Lowell Fulson, and Big Jay McNeely. The DVD play duration is 60 minutes and it supports both VHS and DVD playback,
