Description

It was during the 1950s that popular music first began to reflect the influence of rock ‘n’ roll. From Fats Domino's rolling New Orleans Piano pieces, to Buddy Holly's staccato Texas rock and the Everly Brothers' country harmonies, this was the period that first recognised the new teenage market. It was also during the 1950s that legendary musicians such as Ray Charles and Elvis Presley first rose to fame.From heartfelt ballads to pop, the Big Book Of 50s Songs includes 33 of the very best songs from this unforgettable era, arranged for Piano, Voice and Guitar.
