Bobby Robinson may not be a household name, but his influence is subtly pervasive in the 21st century. Born in South Carolina, he moved to New York City after serving in the Army during World War II, where he opened a record shop in Harlem.

This expansive four-disc box set collects some of the early sides Robinson produced and released through his various labels between 1951 and 1960, and it's quite an archival treasure trove of blues, R&B, and doo wop.
