First of the Best Years of Rock

First of the Best Years of Rock

Playing tracks by

The Ventures, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Preston, Freddy Cannon, Del Shannon and more.

This mix is comprised of eleven songs from 1960 and four from 1961. The start of the best years of rock may be a bit debatable; could have been the two years before or after the time I picked, but then I may add a few more parts to the start and end of the Rock and R&B mixes and make a bigger series out of this then I had planned).. A bit more than half the tracks here are in stereo but, since it was the early years for that technology, some of those recordings came out sounding a bit odd at times (such as with too much separation between the left and the right sides). I mix things up here between mega hits such as 5, 8 & 12 with lesser known tracks such as 2, 7, 10, and 15; one of those being by Chuck Berry (pictured) whom without this compilation wouldn't nearly be as complete.



Great stuff - thanks for sharing!
