If you got any music videos from the '50s, feel free to post them here. The audio has to be from the '50s but the video doesn't necessarily have to
be from the '50s. Post as many as you like. Any genre will do. Classical, rock, jazz, blues, gospel, country or whatever. I promise I won't laugh...
An original from 1954. By many considered the first rock'n roll recording (tho iit ain't). I remember first time hearing it like it was yesterday.
Not sure if it was in 57 or 58. It was at a friend's mothers birthday party. Her brother had been abroad and brought a 78' record, which we played
all afternoon and night. Must have played it at least a hundred times. Just couldn't get enough. No wonder we would prefer it to Raquel Rastenni
(horrible song, horrible sound) -- I just posted it so you could hear what we were up against.
If it wasn't for Rock'n Roll - the fifties would've been just HORRIBLE.
This number is genrally agreed upon as being the first Rock'n Roll number. Written in 1951 by Ike Turner at the Riverside Hotel in Clarksdale,
Mississippi. That's were R'nRoll was born
...BUT according to Wiki it is thought to be based on a 1947 number called "Cadillac Boogie".
