The fifties and sixties were such a wonderful time to grow up and fall in love. It was the first time teenagers had their own music and their own love songs. Time Life is proud to offer The Teen Years, a new 10-CD, 150-song collection filled with teen idols, doo-wop groups, girl groups and more.
The History of Rock and Roll is a mammoth and, when considered on its own terms, frequently successful undertaking. The series, which was first presented in 1995, consumes some 578 minutes, with 10 episodes (there are no bonus features) spread out over five discs. Its pedigree is impressive, as is its scope, beginning in the pre-rock days of bluesman Muddy Waters and boogie woogie master Louis Jordan and continuing through the death of Kurt Cobain and the birth of the Lollapalooza festival in the mid-1990s. Along the way, dozens of big-name performers (with the notable exception of the Beatles) are on hand to lead us through the story.
