I love history I also love music I m in my early thirties but as a child I remember my mom and dad playing Elvis Little Richard Jerry Lee Lewis Buddy Holly and many other classic oldie but goodies The music of the 1950s and 1960s are among my all time favorite I enjoy the music from the 70s through today but there is just something special about the music from the 1950s especially When I saw that I had to read All Shook Up as part of my American History graduate class I was beyond excited I adore those books that combine two loves in oneAltschuler traced the lineage of rock n roll from its roots in the mid 1940s in rhythm n blues and jazz to it s decline in the late 50 s and briefly touches on its renewal in the mid 60s with the British Invasion Rock n roll was a uniuely American development that reflected the tumultuous undercurrents of the supposed conformist era of the 1950sInto this narrative he incorporated the social implications of this new form of music As both an expression of the racial boundaries and an attempt to tear down those boundaries rock n roll simultaneously divided America and brought her together Racial lines were blurred by artists such as Elvis Nat King Cole and Jerry Lee Lewis At the same time white artists were making covers of black songs in order to promote rock n roll to a larger white audience This was also an attempt to convince the older generation that rock n roll was not as sexually charged as they believedAll Shook Up looked closely at the generational divide that existed during this era As teens were buying and listening to rock n roll albums from both white and black artists adults were seeking ways to crush out this phenomenal music movement Parents feared that their white teenage daughters were lusting after black performers and they feared the results of this co mingling of the races The generational divide was glaringly apparent during this time when conformity was the ideal promoted through media outletsAnother great aspect of this work is the examination of the payola scandals and trials Pay to play caused an incredible backlash against rock n roll It ruined the lives of many prominent djs including Alan Freed the dj who coined the term rock n roll as the name of this new genre of music Even the illustrious Dick Clark was implicated in the payola scandals though he was able to clear his name with the help of television executives and continued to build his mega empire of musicWhile All Shook Up provides a brief exploration of the history of rock n roll it is certainly not an all inclusive history of the subject He ends the book with just a brief mention of the Beatles and the British Invasion of the mid 60s He also neglects the rise of the girl groups and many other artists that have become icons of the old time rock n roll In spite of this short coming this book offers a brief and informative introduction to the phenomenal world of rock n rollThis book was an enjoyable read I would recommend this work for anyone who enjoys history rock n roll or just wants something a little different to read All Shook Up is a great book for a ride range of individualsSee official review

Altschuler review All Shook Up: How Rock 'n' Roll Changed America (Pivotal Moments in American History) A nice enthusiastics read of the musically seminal decade roughly around the '50s I don't see the author making a cogent argument that rock changed America It could have been symptom catalyst cause or had any of those roles at different times I do like that the author went deeper into obscure pioneers and dimensions of this story than I usually see in such histories including coverage of Pat Boone bleaching rock LaVern
