1956 was an excellent year, vocalists and groups were breaking away from the big band sounds of the early fifties. Rock “N” Roll was in the ascendancy and it was the year that saw the first Elvis Presley film “Love Me Tender” appear in cinemas world wide. The Platters singing group had smash hits with “My Prayer” and “The Great Pretender”. Fats Domino had a hit with “I’m In Love Again” and Carl Perkins worried about his “Blue Suede Shoes” which must have been infectious as Elvis had the same problem. One of the big Broadway productions of that year was Lerner and Loewe’s “My Fair Lady” and we have featured a selection of tracks from that show on this CD. 1956 was a very good year indeed.
