Product Overview

We should all look so good at fifty.

Rock & Roll at 50: A Galaxy of Hits From Rock's First Decade is a three-disc companion to the PBS special produced in cooperation with WQED/Pittsburgh by the same team that created the famed Doo Wop 50 special (the #1 PBS fundraiser of all time). This new box set contains sixty chartbusting hits, from the genesis of rock in the mid-Fifties, through doo-wop, surf music, Motown, Brill Building pop and the British Invasion.

The track list looks like a Who's Who of rock: Elvis Presley, The Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, The Supremes, Roy Orbison and many, many more. Sixty smash hits in all!

Shout! Factory's 2003 box set Rock and Roll at Fifty: A Galaxy of Hits from Rock's First Decade is an excellent triple-disc overview of the early days of rock & roll. Starting with Carl Perkins' "Blue Suede Shoes," the 60-track set features a little bit of everything from the late '50s and early '60s -- there's a bunch of driving rock & roll, but also hard-charging R&B, Motown, Brill Building pop, girl groups, teen idols, Merseybeat, and surf rock. While there are no surprises here (with the possible exception of beginning disc three with Lou Christie's "The Gypsy Cried"), there are absolutely no duds and most of this is both classic and important, making this a first-rate sampler and introduction to the best music from the early days of rock & roll. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
