Steve Otfinoski (au). A loving tribute to the pioneers of the rock instrumental era, from Dick Dale & Sandy Nelson to Booker T. & the MG’s & the Ventures. This era began in the summer of 1956, when one of the hottest records in the country was a bluesy 12-bar boogie by a 40-year-old organist named Bill Doggett & his combo. The 2-part instrumental was “Honky Tonk” & it stayed in the top 40 for an incredible 22 weeks. Its heavy r&b beat & gritty sax challenged the supremacy of the soft, dreamy pop instrumental that ruled the charts even into the second year of the rock era. Now, for the first time, the rich history of this genre’s golden decade is lovingly examined. Over 100 black & white photos.
