Ok, so as of recently, I've been really into the music of the 50's. It's sort of like a bit of a diversion from everything else I listen to. I'm more into old-time rock 'n roll, and some of the big band/swing stuff.

So what's your favorite 50's material?

By all means, I love a lot of music from that era, as well as early sixties.

Yep! Count me in!

My parents were into all kinds of great music from the 50's, 60's and 70's, so I grew up loving all of that stuff.

My dad was in a rock 'n' roll vocal group in the late 50's/early 60's called TOMMY & THE TONES You can check them out at MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/tommyandthetones

Fave rock 'n' roll/doo wop from the 50's:

Buddy Holly
Little Richard
Ray Charles
James Brown
Chuck Berry
Bill Haley and the Comets
Elvis Presley
Fats Domino
The Big Bopper ('Chantilly Lace')
The Orioles ('Crying in the Chapel')
The Penguins ('Earth Angel')
The Platters ('The Great Pretender')
Frankie Lymon & the Teenagers ('Why Do Fools Fall in Love')
The Five Satins ('In the Still of the Nite')
The Channels ('The Closer You Are')
The Dell Vikings ('Come Go With Me')
The Gladiolas ('Little Darling')
Dell Shannon ('Runaway')
The Silhouettes ('Get a Job')
The Monotones ('Book of Love')
The Imperials ('Tears on My Pillow')
The Crests ('16 Candles')
The Skyliners ('Since I Don't Have You')
Dion & the Belmonts ('A Teenager in love')
The Flamingos ('I Only Have Eyes for You')
Little Anthony & the Imperials ('Shimmy Shimmy Ko Ko Bop')
Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs ('Stay')
The Marcels ('Blue Moon')
The Edsels ('Rama Lama Ding Dong')
The Chips ('Rubber Biscuit')
The Shirelles ('Dedicated to the One I Love')
The Clovers ('Love Potion No. 9')
The Cleftones ('Heart and Soul')
Gene Chandler ('Duke of Earl')
Bobby 'Boris' Pickett ('Monster Mash')

and MANY more that I can't remember or reference right now.

Plus a lot of blues artists from the 50's as well. :blue:

And I also love the big band sound, but the only group I'm familiar with is the Glenn Miller Orchestra who were pretty much the forerunners of that genre. (any recommendations?) The Brian Setzer Orchestra does a good job with bringing that sound to modern times - combined with Brian's signature Rockabilly guitar of course! Smile

Ahh...Ray Charles. What an awesome talent. Smile
My parents and brothers subjected me to quite a lot of different 'styles' of music. I'm thankful for that, really.
It made me Listening and appreciate everything.

Some good music - for sure.

Ray's the man. Great artist - great talent.

Big band is really good too - I like some Harry Connick Jr.
