The Kings Of Rhythm – new Rhythm King’s collectors CD box sets on sale

The albums of Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings have been collected together across three volumes of boxsets, covering 12 CDs including exclusive live sessions from their tours.

Hailed as the good-time ten-piece band that has toured Europe, the UK and has released a huge library of acclaimed albums, Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings have continued that musical journey that Bill started after he left the Rolling Stones in 1992.

With its core of regular members, as well as a rotating who’s-who of music fame and talent, Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings have now pulled together a three volume compilation of albums – both live and studio – as well as exclusive bonus material into a series of collectors’ box sets. The albums are available to buy on iTunes and also Amazon as CD boxsets.
