School is out - at last! 'No more books and studies; I can stay out late with my buddies ... do the things that I wanna do!' Gary U.S. Bonds nails it with his summertime anthem. The infectious 'live-party' sound of Bonds' Legrand record sets the pace for Bear Family's sequel to 'School House Rock Vol. 1 - School Is In!' (BCD17668).
Ahh, school days. Arduous! Ambivalent! Sweet reminiscing and painful memories! During the 1950s, a new target species was developed - or busted down doors and demanded recognition after centuries of neglect: the teenager. They seemed to rule their little universe. One central gathering point to control them, study them, bully them, or try to coax them into usable directions was school. And school is where it all happens - boy meets girl; pimples cause nervous breakdowns; you can't keep twitching due to itching; and you look for your place in life, your little self, your big dreams. School.
Bear Family Records® - again - honors the most important timespan in all our lives with this second volume of high school songs.
This new compilation not only complements 'School House Rock Vol. 1 - School Is In!' (BCD17668) but tops it with an even larger variety of styles - everything from doo-wop to rhythm and blues, from rockabilly to schmaltzy ballads. So, go! Get 'School House Rock Vol. 2 - School Is Out!'.
