The Heart of Rock 'N' Roll 1960 is fifty minutes and three seconds long and has some good songs on it. On the inside the flap, it tells you how high the song went on the chart. Five songs went to number one with He'll Have to Go by Jim Reeves lasting fourteen weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot County Songs charts. Also we get our first Grammy winner with this CD. The music genre on this CD is a mixture of pop and rhythm and blues; He'll Have to Go it the only country song. This CD belongs in anybody's collection that is a fan of early rock n roll. The Heart of Rock 'N' Roll 1960 gets a B+.

In the late 1960's a number of my friends from the Generation of '68 that considered themselves part of the counter-cultural movement argued, sincerely I believe, that music, by while they meant rock or maybe folk/rock music was the revolution. According to this political logic the various summers of love, be-ins, Woodstock, etc. if sustained would create the atmosphere for social change without the need for either a political overthrow of the current capitalist system or doing any heavy political lifting to overturn society's values and create the `new man and woman'. Probably the most articulate expression of that concept was expounded by the likes of John and Yoko Lennon. Well, life has demonstrated once and for all the fantastic nature of that assertion. Which is just a roundabout way for me to argue my point here that while music may not be the revolution some music may be `counter-revolutionary'? Let me explain that further.

Whatever the roots of rock and roll- country, rockabilly, blues, rhythm and blues, etc. the sound produced was clearly a dramatic departure from the likes of Ms. Patti Page and her How Much Is That Doggie In The Window and songs of that ilk that clogged up the airwaves in the early 1950's. Rock got people, and by this I mean young `impressionable' people like myself moving. Moving much more than our parents liked. In short, getting caught up in the `sexual' sensual beat of things like Shake, Rattle and Roll or Good Rockin' Tonight. And there was a palpable backlash from adults and other authorities. While teens might have then begun to have more disposable dollars to spend that money came from parents, for the most part. The record companies and other responded, at least in part, to that reality.
