boogie nroll

Brought over to Italy by American soldiers during the last stages of World War II, boogie-woogie was the most popular dance during the days of the Liberation, and its charm endured for a long time. Ten years later, rock 'n' roll took its place, marking a decisive step in the Americanization of national tastes. The collection features examples of Italian boogies and songs arranged on rock 'n' roll rhythms that range from 1950s parodies to revivals released in the 1980s.
