Ace Cafe - The Rock 'n' Roll Years CD
Celebrating 75 years of the Ace Cafe, London with 28 British and American Rock 'n' Roll recordings released in the UK between 1956 and 1962.
The tracks are rebellious, wild and frantic much like the cultural shift in Britain that the Ace helped drive throughout the 1950s and '60s.
This is the soundtrack of the Ton Up era and subsequent Rocker culture.
