Question about American rock n' roll from 1963.

Tue Oct 16, 2012 9:15 pm

I've been listening to a lot of music from the early 1960s and i got to thinking of American rock n' roll of that time period.

Will you all recommend some good American rock n' roll songs from 1963?

Thanks likethebike.

I hadn't heard 7 or 8 of those recordings.

The Contours should have been more popular.
