Vintage Rock Presents The Rock’n’Roll Years, 1955-1959 is now on sale, continuing with our history of rock’n’roll collection.

In Volume II, we remember John Lennon’s pre-Beatles skiffle outfit The Quarrymen, and look back at the beginnings of Elvis’ career. We talk to the family of Johnny and Dorsey Burnette (aka The Rock’n’Roll Trio) and profile some of the rock and roll greats, including Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Billy Lee Riley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran, Chuck Berry and Little Richard.

All this and more in the second part of our definitive history of rock and roll.
