Mit LP-Diskographien und zahlreichen Schwarzweißfotos. The pivotal decade before Beatlemania has often been unfairly overshadowed. Casual observers will note that it was the age of the Wurlitzer juke box, beautiful convertible cars, smart suits and pretty frocks. It was also the decade of rock ´n´ roll; Bill Haley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, the Platters, Fata Domino, the Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly and of course the icon himself, Elvis Presley. Of vital importance to the shaping of 50s pop are vocalists such as Perry Como, Guy Mitchell, Frankie Laine, Johnnie Ray, Dean Martin and the female stars Doris Day, Peggy Lee, Rosematy Clooney, Kay Starr and Teresa Brewer. The single most influential artist of 50s popular music was Frank Sinatra, who in tun spawned a host of imitators both good and bad. While Britain had to wait until the 60s to assert itself as a major force, it did produce Tommy Steele, Marty Wilde, Cliff Richard, Dickie Valentine, Dennis Lotis, Ted Heath, Ronnie Hilton, Lonnie Donegan, Petula Clark, Ruby Murray, Lita Roza, Joan Regan and the highly underrated Alma Cogan. Stage musicals were having a golden age with The Pajama Game, The King And 1, My Fair Lady and West Side Story all producing memorable hits. This volume, from the publishers of The Guinness Encyclopedia Of Popular Music, goes a long way to demonstrate the importance of the years that truly positioned ´pop´ for the decade that was to follow. Fully illustrated, with an introduction written by 50s pop expert John Martland, this book includes contributions from Brian Hogg, Jeff Tamarkin, Robert Pruter, Bruce Crowther, Johnny Rogan, Colin Larkin, Peter Doggett, Man Clayson, Arthur Jackson, Mitch.Solomons, Lionel Robinson, Spencer Leigh, Dave Laing, Neil Slaven and Dave McAleer

Seamlessly blending history and reportage, Bill Barich offers a heartfelt homage to the traditional Irish pub, and to the central piece of Irish culture disappearing along with it. After meeting an Irishwoman in London and moving to Dublin, Bill Baricha found himself looking for a traditional Irish pub to be his local.There are nearly 12,000 pubs in Ireland, so he appeared to have plenty of choices. He wanted a pub like the one in John Fords classic movie, ´´The Quiet Man´´, offering talk and drink with no distractions, but such pubs are now scare as publicans increasingly rely on flat-screen televisions, rock music, even Texas Hold ´Em to attract a dwindling clientele. For Barich, this signaled that something deeper was at playan erosion of the essence of Ireland, perhaps without the Irish even being aware.A Pint of Plain is Barichs witty, deeply observant portrait of an Ireland vanishing before our eyes. Drawing on the wit and wisdom of Flann O´Brien, James Joyce, Brendan Behan, and J. M. Synge, Barich explores how Irish culture has become a commodity for exports for such firms as the Irish Pub Company, which has built some 500 authentic Irish pubs in 45 countries, where authenticity is in the eye of the beholder. The tale of Arthur Guinness and the famous brewery he founded in the mid-18th century reveals the astonishing fact that more stout is sold in Nigeria than in Ireland itself. From the famed watering holes of Dublin to tiny village pubs, Barich introduces a colorful array of characters, and, ever pursuing craic, the ineffable Irish word for a good time, engages in an unvarnished yet affectionate discussion about what it means to be Irish today. 1.
