September 26, 2017 Record of the Day

Danny and the Juniors topped the charts in 1957 with “At The Hop,” one of the best known hits of the early Rock N Roll era. They followed up in 1958 with another Rock N Roll anthem, “Rock and Roll is Here to Stay.” Most say the kind of Rock N Roll they sang about ended somewhere in the mid-1960’s when “Rock” by itself described the music of the day. The 45, released on ABC-Paramount, is worth up to $25.00 but the 78 rpm version of “Rock and Roll is Here to Stay” can sell for $150.00 today. Both versions are shown here.
