• Various Artists - Rock Around the Block Vol. 1 - Rock and Roll from Around the World

Rock Around The Block, a global flight around the breakout countries of the planet taking off from Norway with Jan Rhode & His Cool Cats and landing in Sweden, South Africa, Holland, Japan, Germany, Hong Kong and Canada to pick up wigged-out wonders like Rock-Boris, Tielman Brothers, and Ronnie Twen & The Perrys. After stops to refuel, on to New Zealand taking a zigzag course and touching down in The Congo. Follow further on your wall-map this crazy trip taking in The Quin-Tikis, Johnny Cooper ('The Maori Cowboy',) Los Llopis plus a surfeit of others with ants in their pants and heat in their seat.

Here you will find 32 examples from 12 rock & roll-infected countries recorded back in the day when the swing era generation thought that this new and loud rock & roll was a passing fancy. What they really meant was they hoped that by dealing with the problem of so-called juvenile delinquency, they would be able to stamp out the rebellious sounds that symbolized the teenagers' own personal search for freedom.
