Product Notes

Compiled by writer, journalist & film-maker Jon Savage. An aural (and visual) close study on the teenager phenomenon of the 50s. The teenager's role & position in 50s pop culture presented like never before. Endless classics (Chuck Berry's 'Sweet Little Sixteen', Dion & the Belmonts' 'Teenager in Love') mixed with more obscure masterpieces like Al Casey's raw 'Teenage Blues' and Portuguese Joe's wild and uncontrollable 'Teenage Riot'. Combined together they paint the full picture. - If anyone is suited to compile a CD themed about teenagers and their role in 50s rock 'n' roll and pop culture, it's UK music-historian, writer, journalist and film-maker Jon Savage. In 2007 Savage published a book about the teenage phenomenon ('Teenage: The Creation of Youth 1875-1945') and Jon is currently working on a cinema release documentary based on this book. But first up is 'Teenage' on Bear Family Records. - 'Teenage' is a full length CD anthology that shines it's spotlight on the teenagers of the 1950s, when the word 'Teenage' became the marketing hook of the new youth music: rock 'n' roll, ballads, doo wop, rockabilly, instrumentals and updated blues. - 'Teenage' covers the years 1951 to 1960. The thick booklet is lavishly illustrated with photos of rare 'teenage related' artifacts and memorabilia. Savage's in depth liner notes provide a fascinating read about the 'teenage' cultural phenomenon of the 50s as well as a detailed and personal track by track presentation of the songs. - It follows the Trikont release, 'Teenage: The Creation of Youth 1911-1946'.
