Philadelphia Pop - Rockin' and Croonin' on Bandstand - 1957-1959 - DOUBLE CD
£14.99
CD / Product Number: JASCD569

After the initial rise of rock and roll, and with thanks to the power of TV the city of Philadelphia briefly became the centre for a new kind of teenage pop music with acts like Frankie Avalon, Fabian and Bobby Rydell who dominated the charts in the late '50s. Featuring recordings made between 1957 and 1959 including such classics as 'At the Hop', 'Venus', 'Butterfly' and 'Tallahassee Lassie'. Virtually every one of the 44 tracks on this great set was a chart record either in America or the UK, often both! Fully detailed liner notes chart the rise of Philadelphia's influence thanks to the popularity of the TV show 'American Bandstand'.
