Take a trip back 70 years to the very beginnings of rock’n’roll with the first of our three-part series.

It was in March 1951 that what’s considered the first rock’n’roll record – Rocket 88 by Jackie Brenston And His Delta Cats - was released. But rock’n’roll didn’t arrive fully formed, and in this 132-page Vintage Rock special we take a deep dive into the music and events that helped create the sound of the 1950s.

We have features on the emerging Teddy Boy movement, the birth of the legendary Sun Records label, Fats Domino, Bill Haley, Hank Williams, innovative deejay Alan Freed, R&B pioneer LaVern Baker, the doo-wop sound, the skiffle revolution, Marlon Brando’s 1953 flick The Wild One, an archive interview with Ike Turner and much, much more. 

So join us as we explore the birth of rock’n’roll with our first volume – 1950-1954.
