Various - The Drugstore's Rockin': Vol.2, The Drugstore's Rockin' (CD)
1-CD DigiPac (6-plated) with 44-page booklet, 26 tracks, playing time 55:35 minutes.
Bear Family’s 'The Drugstore’s Rockin’'.
We continue the series. The idea is that you go into any drugstore or soda pop stand after school sometime between 1958 and 1963, and you’ll hear tunes blasting out of the jukebox that reflected the teenagers’ lives.
The songs might have been punched up one after the other. Some were hits; most were not. But they all said something about how teenagers lived and thought and loved in the long-gone Fabulous Fifties…which as we know, didn’t start until ’55 and didn’t end until ’64.

Teenagers used to like to meet in the drugstore - there was soda pop and usually a jukebox with family-friendly music. The music on this edition, often called high school rock'n'roll, is somewhere between pop, rock'n'roll and country. She swings but doesn't hurt. Just innocent teen music.
