The rock revolution was not televised. Elvis Presley, who launched rockabilly in 1954, did not invent rock ‘n’ roll.
This album rehabilitates the history-making, foundational records which came out of the seminal rock trend; they were present on the black circuit as early as 1949, yet banned on radio stations due to racial segregation.
These splendid—and little-known—recordings testify to the authentic sound, subversiveness and stylistic variation which characterized the birth of rock.
