More Info:

With rock 'n' roll music came a whole new sense of fashion for America's teenagers. It was hip to be wearing the latest trend and singers and songwriters were quick to jump on the bandwagon. Blue Jeans, leather jackets, tight sweaters, were soon the subject of songs and hits. This 30 track CD includes songs from the pre-rock 'n' roll era like Patti Page's "My First Formal Gown" and Norman Brooks' "A Sky-Blue Shirt And A Rainbow Tie" of the early fifties right through to the early sixties when teenagers eager to stand-out and maybe set a trend wore "White Buckskin Sneakers And Checkerboard Socks" and "Red Coat, Green Pants And Red Suede Shoes"... The brighter and more outlandish the better... Along the way there's Levi Jackets, Pink Petticoats and Short Skirts as well as the more novel "Short Shorts" as sung by The Royal Teens and a truly over-the-top novel version of "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini". Included are tracks by best-selling artists like Guy Mitchell, Johnnie Ray, Eddie Cochran, The Big Bopper, The Coasters and Nancy Sinatra. The package includes comprehensive liner notes on each track plus scans, press ads and other images.
