2009 release. In the 1950's, the world was changing at a frenetic pace and this CD is representative of the changes that were happening in music. It was a time that saw the transition of power in music from parents to their teenage children. Rock 'n' Roll, R&B, Soul, Jazz, and Pop music took over everything and the kids loved it. These tracks range form the classic sounds of Nat King Cole and Al Martino, through film classics such as Doris Day, Frank Sinatra and Debbie Reynolds and on to the emergence of Elvis Presley, Sam Cooke, The Crickets, Fats Domino and Bill Haley &*His Comets. It is a great representation of the age- many of the stars adapted and went on to flourish in the new culture whilst others faded away. The album features many of the best selling singles of the decade and features some of the greatest names in the history of music. 20 tracks.
