Reelin' & Rockin'. The Golden Age of American Rock 'n' Roll. Volume 2: 1956-1959 - Lee Cotten.
Nearly 150 pages larger than its predecessor, this mammoth volume picks up the story of the early 50s, the R&B odyssey of the mid 50s to the close of the decade - mapping out not only the progress of black R&B but also the development of the emergent white-dominated rock 'n' roll. Continung with the format of the first volume, daily events, weekly listings of new releases, an inventory of top records of the month and biographical summaries are presented. Another fine reference book for music historians and serious lovers of these eras of popular music (hardback, pre-owned. Book weight 1.9kg).
