Ace’s flagship “Golden Age” series continues to be among our best selling and most highly respected releases. After a short hiatus, we’re pleased to announce this new volume featuring 28 country recordings that made the Billboard Hot 100 between 1955 and 1963. As “More Country Hits” is in the “Golden Age Of American Popular Music” series, the content is more melodic overall than a “Golden Age Of American Rock’n’Roll” edition might be. Nevertheless, there’s a generous helping of up-tempo hillbilly and borderline rockabilly among the straight-ahead country to give listeners a bit of light and shade. As usual, the CD comes with a generously illustrated and copiously annotated booklet.

Rhythm and blues was an urban black phenomenon, country a white rural one, but when Elvis Presley cut 'That's All Right' in 1954, the fusion of the genres he pioneered - soon to be dubbed rock'n'roll - gave artists license to blur the line between genres. He led the way for new sounds and styles to arrive in the charts in the '50s from the likes of Bo Diddley, Fats Domino and Chuck Berry, all included here. So pucker up those Lucky Lips, take a swig of Love Potion Number 9 and prepare to Jump The Broomstick like a Juvenile Delinquent.

Once a vibrant part of American culture, drive-ins reached their peak in the late 50s with almost 5,000 dotting the nation. Although drive-ins are experiencing a resurgence, today less than 400 remain. In a nation that loves cars and movies, why haven't they survived?
