The Story Behind the Top Ten Chart Hits from the 50's and 60's; The Two Decades That Defined Rock 'n' Roll.
Most readable and often highly entertaining, the prose is lively and uses quotations inventively as narrative technique. To say the book is entertaining is not to underrate its informative credentials. With a year-by-year review of over 291 Top 10 songs from three countries, USA-UK and Ireland, the book contains a year and song index making it easy to dip into your favourite year or song. The introduction also gives a great insight into the dawn of rock and roll. It highlights the transition from rhythm and blues to rock 'n' roll through the medium of radio, tv, and film - an impressive achievement.
