The "golden" era of rock 'n' roll-from the mid fifties to the early, pre-Beatles sixties-
contained a wonderfully diverse selection of music that gained its power from the
vitality of its sources. Naturally, the blues were at the core of much of the material, as it is
for virtually all great American popular music. Riding on the jitterbugging heels of first
swing and then R&B from the forties (both of which were built upon the blues), much rock
'n' roll appropriated I-IV-V chord changes, boogie shuffle rhythms, and the use of the
blues scale in its solos. Additionally, this new teen music often displayed the defiantly ebullient
attitude espoused in R&B at a time when de-facto segregation was finally being dismantled
in the schools with the Brown vs. Board of Ed decision handed down by the
Supreme Court in 1954. Black artists from the R&B and blues genres like Chuck Berry and
Bo Diddley started finding access to the commercial airwaves through the grace of people
like Cleveland DJ Alan Freed. His "Moondog Matinee" radio show served up this exciting
(and taboo!) music to the nascent, young white audience hungry for an alternative to
the pabulum served up by Perry Como, Teresa Brewer, and their ilk on the Hit Parade.
At the same time, the national optimism following the postwar years was counterbalanced
by the start of the Cold War between the U.S. and Russia. One result of this was
the "Commie" witch hunts spearheaded by Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin. The
other result was the advent of a youth culture with free time on its hands to spend on
Brylcreem, black leather jackets, cars, girls, and rebellious rock 'n' roll. This new culture,
with its growing sense of disenfranchisement, along with the move from a rural agrarian
society to an 'urban manufacturing one, was just the right environment in which a revolutionary
type of music could flourish.
Rockabilly, a subgenre that grew out of the natural synthesis of country (or
hillbilly music), Western Swing, and blues, showed the ease with which whites like Bill
Haley (and especially those from the South) would adapt black music forms to their indigenous
music. With Elvis Presley's unprecedented ascendance in 1954-56, other ducktailed
rockers like Dale Hawkins, Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochran, and the Rock and Roll Trio
with Johnny Burnette bopped their way into the Top 40. A more clean-cut image, with
music just as cool, came by way of Buddy Holly from Texas. Horn-rimmed glasses never
looked so hip. Even Nashville got into the act as the legendary Chet Atkins lent his
considerable talents to the proto-country rock of the Everly Brothers and their heavenly
vocal harmonies.
The late fifties into the early sixties also saw the emergence of instrumental music
onto the pop charts. Often based, though not always, on blues riffs and progressions, it
had tremendous across-the-board appeal. Duane Eddy, with his "twangy" Gretsch guitar,
was a top seller for years, while the lesser-known Virtues (whose Jimmy Bruno Sr. is the
father of contemporary jazz "virtuoso" Jimmy Bruno, Jr.) were one-hit wonders. Technology
certainly played a part during this time, as the electric guitar with advanced amplification
(featuring reverb and tremolo!) led to new sounds eagerly embraced by aspiring players
and fans alike. The rock 'n' roll era began with the tenor saxophone as the dominant instrumental
voice, but by the end of the fifties the guitar was reigning supreme.
As the fifties decade rolled over, a group of artists spanned the transition to the
British Invasion of 1964. Roy Orbison, with the magnificent voice that "scared" Elvis,
evolved out from his Sun Records rockabilly background to produce a unique catalog of
rocking tunes and epic melodramatic ballads in the early sixties. Ricky Nelson had also
dabbled in the rockabilly genre, with the help of ace guitarist James Burton, while still
appearing on the "Ozzie and Harriet Show" with his family in the late fifties. By 1960, he
too had progressed to a smoother style with a trace of C&W influence that hinted at the
direction his career would take later on. Meanwhile, Del Shannon, with his swooping
falsetto and heartbreaking tales of love lost, would be one of the last of the first generation
of American rock 'n' rollers to hit the charts in the early sixties. Ironically, some of his
vocal mannerisms and clever songwriting skills would influence the Beatles and other
British groups that would supplant him and his peers. Not until nostalgia bands like Sha
Na Na and the oldies revival in the late sixties would the original rock artists find a
deserved place back in the spotlight.
