The Rock 'N' Roll Era - 1959

Very smart clean both double album and gatefold cover.

Time Life music collections are always solid, well-done affairs, and this one, which features classic early era rock & roll hits from 1959, is no exception. Every track is a hands down winner, and it's always wonderful to hear such timeless gems as the Coasters' "Charlie Brown," Lloyd Price's near definitive version of "Stagger Lee," and the Drifters' "There Goes My Baby." Songs about the sea, in all its metaphoric possibilities, were big in 1959, and two of those oceanic classics are also here, Phil Phillips' "Sea of Love" and Frankie Ford's "Sea Cruise."
