Back in the Day
The 1950's were a time of changes, the music of the decade both reflected the cultural changes that were happening while still holding on the societal norms of the past. While music was developing, technology was also changing. In the late 1940's and early 1950's, phonograph records were large and heavy and easily damaged. In the 1950's, records began to change with the development of new technology that led to both the 33 rpm record and the 45 rpm record. The advantage of the new technology was that more musical information could be put on a record, and it was of higher technical quality.
