Early Rock ‘n Roll Ballads

ID : 7598   
« back to classes page

While artists such as Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, and the Four Seasons dominated the first decade of the Rock ‘n Roll Era with up-tempo hits, several other great vocalists gained fame for singing and arranging both original and cover versions of classic ballads that have endured over the half-century since they were first recorded.  Groups such as the Platters and the Everly Brothers as well as solo performers such as Ben E. King, Johnny Mathis, Roy Orbison, and Bobby Vinton were responsible for a large percentage of record sales and then became a staple on television programs such as American Bandstand and the Ed Sullivan Show.  This nostalgic program will revisit many of these classic numbers as they were performed in live concerts or on television.
