Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. This is a timeline of music in the United States from 1950 to 1969. The Fender Esquire guitar is released; it is the first "mass-produced, solid body electric guitar." The recent success of "Tennessee Waltz," a "folk" or country song, a number of cover versions are released, including Jimmy Mitchell's, arranged for jazz band by Erskine Hawkins, and Patti Page, whose version is "pathbreaking" as Page sings "four-piece harmony with herself, creating a delicate latticework of sound... simultaneously direct and ethereal, plain yet highly ornamented, with an aura of childlike magic."show more
