Screen-Shot-2013-09-09-at-19.16.36The autographed limited edition of the Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings 5 CD Collector’s Edition has gone on sale in the UK exclusively with Proper Music – and you can purchase the exclusive signed CD set below – NOW SOLD OUT. Unsigned copies are available here 

This five-disc Collectors’ Edition Box Set, which gathers four studio albums Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings cranked out between their 1998 debut Struttin’ Our Stuff and 2001’s Double Bill, is a revelation, particularly for those who have yet to discover the rich body of work of Wyman’s low-profile/high-revving band.

Given the expansive array of material the Rhythm Kings tackle in these recordings, one even might think of this collection as a pocket history of 20th century roots music, with original material written in the spirit of the old songs serving as the connective tissue. The Wyman box was be released in the U.S. on Proper American Records on October 25, 2011 – and is now available in the UK.

It’s this quality that has drawn a jaw-dropping procession of virtuosos to play alongside Wyman in the context of Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings whenever their busy schedules have permitted. Scattered here and there through these 66 tracks are the likes of Eric Clapton, Procol Harum’s Gary Brooker, fellow former Stone Mick Taylor, Mark Knopfler, Peter Frampton, Paul Carrack, Chris Rea, acclaimed jazz guitarist Martin Taylor, master percussionist Ray Cooper and, in some of their final recordings, George Harrison and Nicky Hopkins.

The Rhythm Kings have been going strong for a decade and half and still counting, with an ever-shifting lineup of fellow all-star players coming together from all points on the stylistic map and locking together with the precision of a Swish watch – albeit with a lot more soul.
