Vintage Rock Issue 50 (April/May 2021) Greatest Albums of the 50s
We’ve finally made it to the big 5-0, a half century of issues bringing you the best in vintage sounds. To celebrate, we’ve cooked up something special for our latest cover feature – a very personal selection of the 50 greatest albums of the 50s.
Elsewhere, we talk to Lee Rocker about the road trip down Route 66 that inspired his latest studio album, hear from two music-fan twins who are keeping the rock’n’roll heritage of Iowa alive, plus we relive the cinematic delights of The Girl Can’t Help It.
We also profile teen heartthrob Ricky Nelson, songwriting duo Leiber & Stoller, The Marcels and Smiley Lewis, Roy Orbison’s Lonely & Blue is our classic album and we interview some fine new rockin’ talent, including Red Hot Riot and McKinley James.
Our packed reviews section includes Elvis, Imelda May, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Sharks and much more.
