Ace's series of acclaimed overviews of the labels originally owned by the Bihari brothers has already featured RPM and Flair. Now it's the turn of Kent to receive the Ace treatment.

In 1958 the brothers closed down all their existing imprints and incorporated Kent as their sole singles label. Initially offering a mixture of musical styles, the label quickly became a home for West Coast R&B as its predecessors. Kent existed until 1972 when the Bihari family pulled out of front-line record production.

This first 2CD set covers approximately the first years of the label and will be followed by another 2CD set covering the remaining years. B.B. King was Kent s biggest artist by far, but many other familiar names (including Etta James, Jimmy Witherspoon and even the Ink Spots) crop up in the course of the 48 tracks here a staggering 32 of which have never been issued or reissued in this form before. From rockabilly to rock n roll to R&B, Kent did it all and did it all very well, as you will hear.
