2009 five CD anthology. Between 1956 and 1964, the years that this set spans, there were many big changes in the music world. The music itself too had, of course, altered significantly in the period when teens went from Teddy Boys to Mods, and British Rock 'N' Roll artists went from fans to followers to leaders. This anthology includes most of the varied faces of UK Rock in that era including a few somewhat dated or carefully cloned covers, novelty numbers, Skiffle songs, praiseworthy interpretations of US hits, outstanding original rock songs, instrumentals, teen beat/pop rock, early British R&B and Merseybeat. It does in fact include almost every musical area of note in British Rock music's rise, and goes literally from big bands to The Beatles. Spectrum.
