Publisher Description

There is no doubt that Rock 'n' Roll had its beginnings in

America. Artists such as Bill Haley, Little Richard,

Jerry Lee Lewis, Gene Vincent, Elvis Presley and Eddie

Cochran were the idols of the early British rock 'n' rollers,

as homegrown acts such as Tommy Steele, Lonnie

Donegan, Billy Fury and Cliff Richard produced their

own versions of this new music.



But by the end of 1962, rock 'n' roll was in danger of

becoming extinct. The music charts on both sides of the

Atlantic were overwhelmed by softer songs lacking the

dynamism and raw power of the originators.



Emerging from this panache of smoothness, the British

acts of the Beat Boom rejuvenated and revitalised the

music industry with their freshness and excitement.



This is the story of those climactic years when Britannia

ruled the airwaves across the world.
