Pop music as we have come to know it really began with rock and roll. This compilation includes many of the classic songs from the birth of rock and roll up to the early sixties including many of the great American artists and a few of the best British artists.
Among the famous tracks here are Rock around the clock (Bill Haley), Blue suede shoes (Carl Perkins), Heartbreak hotel, Hound dog (both Elvis Presley), Great balls of fire (Jerry Lee Lewis), Long tall Sally, The girl can't help it (both Little Richard), Bird dog (Everly brothers), Dream lover (Bobby Darin), Only the lonely (Roy Orbison), Save the last dance for me (Drifters), Hello Mary Lou (Ricky Nelson), Rubber ball (Bobby Vee), The locomotion (Little Eva), Let's Dance (Chris Montez), Will you love me tomorrow (Shirelles), The wanderer (Dion), Runaway (Del Shannon), Tears on my pillow (Little Anthony), Poetry in motion (Johnny Tillotson) and I only have eyes for you (Flamingos) – and there are plenty of others, too.
The British are represented by Cliff Richard (Move it, Do you wanna dance), Adam faith (What do you want), Johnny Kidd and the pirates (Shaking all over), the Shadows (F B I), Billy Fury (Halfway to paradise), Helen Shapiro (Don't treat me like a child) and Marty Wilde (Sea of love).
If you are looking for a collection of rock'n'roll music, this is as good as you are likely to find. There are some artists notable by their absence including Chuck Berry and Brenda Lee but with over sixty great tracks, who's complaining? Not me.

Bring back the good times! Great album and a good addition to anyone's collection. Would be excellent if it had everything that I wanted on it, but everyone's got differing tastes. More retro albums needed, especially of group instrumentals of the same period.
