What a fun time the fifties and early sixties were! It was a time of cultural innocence, of youth growing up and being influenced by puppy-love, cars and rock & roll. Music for the first time began to merge from the black cultural rhythm and blues to the young white culture with that "big beat" and soon performers such as Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Sam Cooke, Ray Charles and a host of others were singing to white audiences with great success. But let's not also forget to mention Elvis, Bill Haley, Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran, Jerry Lee Lewis and many others that brought rock & roll to the forefront. Some of the best posters of all time were produced during this period. Here are some of my favorites.
