The First Rock And Roll Record 3CD


November 10, 2011 -> guardian.co.uk
The question of what constitutes the first rock'n'roll record is controversial and highly emotive. It takes in serious issues about attitudes to race in 1940s America and interminable nitpicking internet arguments about snare drum accents and eight-to-the-bar boogie-woogie rhythms. It began decades ago, when Sam Phillips announced he had discovered the sound that changed the world years before Elvis Presley had fetched up in Sun Studio, offering Jackie Brenston's admittedly amazing 1952 single Rocket 88 as evidence. It's rumbled on ever since.
