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.

Thirty-five-odd years after rock & roll first burst upon us in all its glory, we still don’t have a simple, definitive answer to these questions. Of course, they are trick questions. The coming of rock & roll in the mid-Fifties was not merely a musical revolution but a social and generational upheaval of vast and unpredicatable scope. It also represented a major reversal in the business of popular music. At the same time a combination of economic forces and the gradual takeover of record-distribution networks by major labels made running a small label more and more difficult. The indie labels that had launched the music and sustained it during the two or three years when it ravaged the land either caved in to the pressure and quietly wound down their operations, like Sun and Specialty, or diversified and became corporate giants themselves, like Atlantic.

Rock-n-roll started in the USA with the great black rhythm-n-blues players: Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and Chuck Berry. Fifty years ago black and white music were two completely separate things. Chuck Berry was the first black musician who crosses the barrier and sells records to both black and white young people. His songs were about the lives of teenagers. Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly mixed black music with white ‘country’ music to create rock-n-roll. This was all happening in the United States.

49. Metallica: Ride The Lightning. Music industry professionals refer to it as Difficult Second Album Syndrome, the condition whereby an emerging artist storms into the spotlight with their first album and then discovers that, after 18 months on tour promoting said release, they have no idea what to do for an encore. But then it should also be remembered that at the time they recorded Kill ‘Em All, Metallica’s principal songwriters James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich were just nineteen years old. Read that again: nineteen years old. 48. AC/DC: Let There Be Rock. Ramble On teases with a dreamy opening before exploding into life. And if its Tolkien-referencing lyrics about Mordor and Gollum embarrass Plant today, he needn’t worry too much. Close to 40 years on, Van Halen’s debut album has lost none of its shine, nor any of its importance.

Good rock and roll has a sense of humor amid the cynicism and melodrama of the music. Phantom sardonically skewers the music industry, turning a record contract into a Faustian deal with the devil. If you ever saw The Great Rock ‘n’ Swindle, you know that it was kinda just that, less a documentary about The Sex Pistols and more an arty dupe ( presented as a mockumentary ) on the part of Malcom McClaren, who sought to control the narrative about the legendary UK band he managed. So much of rock and roll is intrinsically tied to teenage lust, and the Ivan Reitman-produced Heavy Metal is 88 minutes of just that. Reitman even brings along SCTV cast members - arguably the most rock and roll comedy troupe around in 1981 - to provide the voices of intergalactic lawyers and nyborg snorting aliens.

Rock critic and scholar Greil Marcus has just released a book with Yale Press called The History of Rock ‘n’ Roll in Ten Songs, and it appears to be an unusual take on a very hackneyed subject, as Marcus admits in the video trailer above: Everybody knows the history of rock ‘n’ roll, he says, What if it was just about a few. songs?  . The song lacks the bite and growl of At Last! from the same album, but Marcus makes a weighty allusion in referring to two different versions. By including Beyoncé’s take on the song, the list hauls in the history of Chicago’s Chess records and Knowles' outstanding performance as James in 2008’s Cadillac Records, a film that takes us from Muddy Waters's electric blues to Chuck Berry's hybrid crossover sound. 100 Years of Rock in Less Than a Minute: From Gospel to Grunge.
