Premium Records proudly presents Audiophile Oldies!

This high quality recording contains Audiophile Favorites from a time since passed that perhaps will tug at heartstrings with a bit of nostalgia. An astounding imported 180 gram LP from the Premium label, it contains 14 wonderful tracks from artists such as Paul Anka, Nat King Cole, Connie Francis, The Everly Brothers, Andy Williams and more!! A compilation of great hits from various artists in the 1950s and 1960s.

The 1950's were a time of changes and the music of the decade both reflected the cultural changes that were happening while still holding on to the societal norms of the past. Following the detrimental effects of World War II, the United States was about to embark on a musical journey that would change the face of music for decades to come.

Traditional Pop music of the 1950's refers to the music that was popular before rock music came into the mainstream in the middle of the fifties. It also refers to music that was popular at the same time as the beginning of rock music and through the decade but remained largely free of rock influences. Some examples of traditional pop artists who were popular during the decade were Perry Como, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Patti Page and Dean Martin. They sang a lot of original material, but a lot of their most popular hits were American standards, or songs that had been released many years previously and were already well known by the public.

There can be identified three main pockets of early 60's pop.

The East Coast DooWop and girl groups were singers and groups whose origins are in the streetcorner a cappella groups found in many urban centers. With very rare exceptions, these groups did not write their own songs, but relied on their handlers to set up the recording sessions, pick the material, and produce the records. In fact, many of these behind-the-scenes people eventually became stars in their own right in the seventies.

The R&B and Soul scene included many talented people who often didn't receive the popularity of less-talented white groups, because of barriers and prejudices against buying "race" records. Later in the decade, after the British groups acknowledged their debt to soul music, and as the civil rights movement inspired black pride, the general American public rediscovered these performers.

The California scene was first dominated by instrumental surf groups. Then the Beach Boys added vocal harmonies to the surf sound. This surf-&-drag, fun-in-the-sun sound was so popular that the style showed up all over the place, even in tv theme songs such as the Munsters and Hawaii Five-O. But the real important stuff was happening in the recording studios, where young studio wizards like Brian Wilson, Phil Spector, and the team of Sloan & Barri began turning the studio itself into their instrument, looking for new sounds in a quest not for records but for productions.
