INFORMATION OM PRODUKTEN
The wild rock stars like Little Richard, Elvis Presley, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly and many others let off steam for quite a while.
They toured around the world and performed their hits almost everywhere. Elvis joined the military. At the end of this period, a new generation stepped into the spotlight: Young teenage idols like Ricky Nelson, Fabian, Frankie Avalon, Dion & The Belmonts,
Neil Sedaka but also the crooners Pat Boone and Perry Como joined the movement of this new musical trend.
These new faces were teenagers and just finished high school. Beside these big names, there were also many "High School Rockers" who did not become that popular. The style of the Rock & Roll became cleaner and more moderate. The modern pop wave started and pop music conquered the classrooms and drugstores.
Beside the rock songs, also sentimental teenage ballads became successful, some might call these songs tearjerkers. On this 10 CD-Set, we collected the highlights of this new generation.
