060Various ‘What’s Her Name?’ 1950’s Songs about American Girls – DL-060

Released: 2nd Jan 2010, Download Only

Rock ‘n’ Roll  has always  been synonymous with the celebration and pursuit of girls from the very start, they are inextricably linked, guys joined bands to enhance their chances of scoring and dedicated  many songs to particular girls they were dating  (or would like to be!)
Let this album take you back to more innocent times, when the American dream was a reality, when youth consisted of  taking your Gal to the Drive In Movie to see ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ in your Father’s Cadillac (that had a large back seat!)
