Every Song is Number One…

PEACE AND MUSIC by Dennison Daniel Moore expresses a view of rock’n’roll history from the perspective of a fan who grew up during the 45 rpm phonograph record era known as the golden age of rock’n’roll.

Unlike conventional rock’n’roll histories that present only the tip of the iceberg, Peace and Music presents the complete history from the invention of the phonograph in the 1800s to the dawn of the 33 1/3 rpm record album era of the early 1970s. At the core of that history is the story of the largest youth movement of the 20th century. That youth movement embodied both the foundation of rock’n’roll and the largest peace movement in that century.

One of the main facts overlooked by conventional rock’n’roll histories is the fact that rock’n’roll was the folk music of the age of electricity. America did not complete its electric power grid until circa. 1950. Likewise the instrument that is now most associated with rock’n’roll, the electric guitar, had not been perfected until that time.

Old guitarists adapted their old styles to the new medium while young guitarists explored new styles by stretching the electric guitar to its limits. Overall the main aspect missing from conventional rock’n’roll histories is the viewpoint of the fans who bought the records. Industry insiders and scholars typically present encyclopedic type histories devoid of emotion. Peace and Music provides emotion by framing the history of the American music industry around the first 24 years of the author’s life story. During that time, he bopped at the hop, twisted at the go-go and partied with the music segment of the peace movement.

Rock’n’roll fans of any era can now join the party of PEACE AND MUSIC. Scroll up and click the Buy Now button and learn about this amazing, not well known aspect of rock and roll history today, and be forever moved by the rock’ roll movement!
