The Golden Age of Rock 'n' Roll" is a single by Mott the Hoople, from 1974's The Hoople. It reached number 16 on the UK Singles Chart. Performed live by Mott, "The Golden Age of Rock 'n' Roll" would usually follow a piano take on the first verse of Don McLean's "American Pie", hence following the latter's statement, "The day the music died". Ian Hunter would declare: "Or did it? Ladies and gentlemen, The Golden Age of Rock 'n' Roll!", whereupon the whole band launched into the song.

Collectors of pre-invasion American rock and roll 45's on CD may need therapy now that Ace Records has announced the end of their spectacular "Golden Age of American Rock 'n' Roll" series with this, the tenth volume. I'm a 50s music kind of person and this album along with others in the series meets and exceeds my expectations. I've found Ace to have the music whether it be "Oldies but Goodies" or some of the lesser known songs that I listened to when I was young. This album, brings back memories, memories of a different time, memories of the good times in my life.

By 1958 rock'n'roll reached the UK. But it was Cliff Richard and Marty Wilde, not Elvis Presley and Dion & the Belmonts. By 1956 there were hundreds of small record companies in the US pouring out rock'n'roll and rhythm and blues records. By 1958 there were thousands, tens of thousands and they were hitting the top ten pop charts. That was the end of the era of American rock'n'roll as 50s teenagers knew i. ver the years most of the bigger independent American companies such as Atlantic and Chess have been swallowed up by majors. This 30 track CD celebrates the American hits of the smaller independents from 1954 to 1963. There are 21 Top 10 American hits here, all but one made the Top 30. More importantly, all are mastered off the finest tapes still surviving.

The term Various Artists is used in the record industry when numerous singers and musicians collaborate on a song or collection of songs. fm, compilation album tracks appear under the name of Various Artists erroneously because the individual artist is not listed in the album's ID3 information.

From folk-rock to Lizard Kings to the 1970s singer-songwriter boom, Elektra’s logo was at the forefront. A five-CD anthology, Forever Changing: The Golden Age Of Elektra Records 1963-73 doesn’t attempt to straddle the label’s lifetime. Compiled by three Englishmen (Uncut regular Mick Houghton, Stuart Batsford and Phil Smee), it focuses on a 10-year period of acceleration and revolution which made Elektra successful, but also unrecognisable. The following two discs acknowledge Elektra’s 1966-67 move into electric rock with Love ( My Little Red Book, Alone Again Or ) and The Doors ( Light My Fire, Five To One ). Neither disc relies very heavily on rock, however. There are haunting, well-chosen performances from Elektra’s coterie of idiosyncratic singers: Tom Rush, Tim Buckley, David Blue, David Ackles, Nico.
