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 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.
