Description: The aim of this book is to provide a complete handbook of information and opinion about the history of the music of the 1950s. There are over 1000 entries on the bands, musicians, songwriters, producers and record labels of this decade, everyone who had any significant impact on the postwar music culture which gave birth to rock and roll. From Doris Day, Nat King Cole, Chuck Berry and Frank Sinatra to the Everley Brothers, Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran and Elvis Presley, this encyclopaedia aims to answer any query about any aspect of 50s music. As well as the giants of the decade, the book also includes those artists who flourished briefly such as Frankie Ford and Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers.
