I started buying these when they were still on LPs... Fortunately, the switch to CD started shortly thereafter and I bought most of the 50 CD Rock & Roll Era series, from Time/Life directly. Except for some of the single-artist collections, since I have a very extensive collection of single artist box sets and CDs, especially Elvis, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and Buddy Holly.

The remastered sound on these releases is excellent and the song selection is second to none for a Rock & Roll period anthology. For 50s fans, I'd recommend 1954-1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959 and 1960 collections; also, they did a companion series (now hard to find) called Still Rockin', which runs from 1956 through 1963. They're quite good and flesh out each year's selections so that you have over 40 songs from each year.

I like to throw the Rock & Roll Era 1956 and 1956 Still Rocking along with Elvis Presley 1956 (none of the "collections" have any Elvis songs) along with Volume 3 off the Rhino Doo Woop Box (1956-1957) and Volume 5 of the Specialty Records box set all in my 5-disc changer; and -- Man, I'm back in 1956! For great music, it doesn't get much better than that.

When I've heard those selections a few times, I put out a 1957-1958 group of 5 CDs and I'm rockin'! This series is my jumping off point for great lisenting, since today's music is such drek it's worse than industrial noise.

For the Still Rockin' volumes you'll have to go to E-bay, but it's worth the time and money.

I, seemingly, have endlessly gone back to my early musical roots in reviewing this Time-Life classic rock series that goes under the general title The Rock `n' Roll Era. And while time and ear have eroded the sparkle of some of the lesser tunes it still seems obvious that those years, say 1955-58, really did form the musical jail break-out for my generation, the generation of '68, who had just started to tune into music.

And we, we small time punk in the old-fashioned sense of that word, we hardly wet behind the ears elementary school kids, and that is all we were for those who are now claiming otherwise, listened our ears off. Those were strange times indeed in that be-bop 1950s night when stuff happened, kid's stuff, but still stuff like a friend of mine, not Billie who I will talk about later, who claimed, with a straight face to the girls, that he was Elvis' long lost son. Did the girls do the math on that one? Or, maybe, they like us more brazen boys were hoping, hoping and praying, that it was true despite the numbers, so they too could be washed by that flamed-out night.

Well, this I know, boy and girl alike tuned in on our transistor radios (small battery- operated radios that we could put in our pockets, and hide from snooping parental ears, at will) to listen to music that from about day one, at least in my household was not considered "refined" enough for young, young pious you'll never get to heaven listening to that devil music and you had better say about eight zillion Hail Marys to get right Catholic, ears. Ya right, Ma, like Patti Page or Bob (not Bing, not the Bing of Brother, Can You Spare A Dime? anyway) Crosby and The Bobcats were supposed to satisfy our jail break cravings.
