VA - Time-Life - Rock Classics (Complete Series) (2007) ##HOT##

The Rock'n'Roll Era was a 53-volume series issued by Time-Life during the late 1980s and early 1990s, spotlighting songs from the early years of the rock and roll era, primarily the pre-Beatles era of 1954-1964. The first major and successful rock music-intensive subscription music series released by Time-Life, songs on the series included music heard on mainstream contemporary hit radio stations of the late 1950s and early to mid-1960s.

VA - Time-Life - Rock Classics (Complete Series) (2007)

Time-Life, which had been offering books as part of its subscription media offerings since 1961, began offering music the next year. Virtually all of the series issued for the first 20 years catered to adults with high-culture and/or conservative music tastes: classical, jazz, swing and orchestral music; and the music of operas and Broadway theatre. Whenever popular music was offered in a subscription series, the music was usually either from big band-era and/or pre-1955 adult standard-era performers, including Guy Lombardo, Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby, Perry Como and Patti Page. Although two country music-intensive series were also issued during the early- and mid-1980s, nothing resembling rock music had been offered until "The Rock'n'Roll Era."

Each volume in "The Rock'n'Roll Era" focused on a particular year (in this case, 1955 through 1964), a stylistic trend or particular artist influential in rock music; of the latter, seven such artists (Elvis Presley, The Supremes, The Beach Boys, The Everly Brothers, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Roy Orbison, and Ricky Nelson) had volumes of exclusively their material. The songs were said to be the original hit recording by the original artist (although this wasn't always true on early pressings of the early albums in the series), and the most important and popular songs from the period or subject featured.
