6 Pack of Coca-Cola + 12 Top Hits = 50’s Fun

Great 33rpm record sleeve from the roaring fifties, the era that gave birth to rock and roll.

The fifties saw a great change in popular tunes. From the Easy Listening and Big Band era, the musical taste moved to Doo Wop. With hits like “Hound Dog”, “Don’t be Cruel” and “Love Me Tender”, Elvis lit up the scene. Rock and roll was more than just music, it quickly became a way of life.
Teenagers came forth with new ways of “dirty dancing” – the Jitterbug, Limbo & Twist. The popular fashion for girls was poodle skirts & cardigans and jeans, checked/striped shirts or T-shirts for the boys. Guys greased their hair, girls wore ponytails and bangs. Hula Hoops and Yo-Yo’s were the craze of the day.
Unmissable ingredients to get the party started were a portable turntable with a bunch of the lastest hit records, and some sixpacks of Coca-Cola bottles to share with your friends.
