Everybody Jive To The London Rock N Roll Spins (CD)
In the mid 1950s, while the Western World was still immersed in the aftermath of World War Two, a new concept was discovered. This concept, stroppy and rebellious, was the teenager. Up till then you were a child until you became an adult. One minute you were in short pants, the next you were smoking a pipe. Now there was an intermediary stage, during which you could experience the nascent pleasures of adulthood without having to succumb to its more mundane disciplines. These new teenagers needed new idols. They couldn't relate to the polite swing of the dance bands. Some found modern jazz a bit too esoteric, while, to be honest, the heart-throbs of the early 50s mostly looked like they were in their early 50s! Suddenly a wild, new sound from the USA was being broadcast over select airwaves. Singers with exotic names like Jerry Lee, Elvis, Buddy and Gene were strutting their stuff. Hollywood was beginning to embrace this movement, and, over in The UK, jazzmen, dance band members, crooners and hopeful kids were suddenly buying guitars, greasing back their hair and rockin' like there was no tomorrow. Here's a selection of what was happening in the basements and coffee bars of Britain at that most wonderful and innocent of times. We've got lids to be flipped, joints to be rocked and rugs to be cut. So what are you waiting for?
