Description by OLDIES.com:
So you wanna hear some of that rock 'n' roll music? Well, here are twenty defining records from the era of jukeboxes, drive-in movies, big Chevys and diners; from the time when teenagers first became important. This is the story of the stars that defined the era, the music that conquered 1950s America and, shortly afterwards, the rest of the world. In 1958, the American Catholic Youth Center's newspaper, Contacts deemed of all God-fearing Catholics: "Smash the records you possess which present a pagan culture and a pagan concept of life. Check beforehand the records which will be played at a house party or a school record dance. Switch your radio dial when you hear a suggestive song." They, like many others, realized that rock 'n' roll was the kind of music that clean-living people should avoid. Intuitively, or otherwise, they knew that rock 'n' roll was all about sex. What they didn't know was the rock 'n' roll was here to stay!
