1950s EASY-POP Songs and Singers...on the verge of Rock 'n Roll
Big Band music dominated the first half of the 20th century... and Rock ‘n’ Roll ruled the second half... but between the two... there was the decade of infectious 1950s EASY-POP music.
This is the definitive story behind the sound that defined a decade -- 1950s EASY-POP Songs and Singers -- that seminal time in popular music when big bands were fading but rock 'n' roll had not yet arrived. Jukeboxes, 45rpm records, black & white TV, sock-hops, drive-in mopvies, and top-ten hits on the car radio characterized popular culture and music. This book analyzes 50s EASY-POP music with an appreciation for the professional efforts behind the records.
