Britain had a new Prime Minister in 1957, 62 year-old Harold Macmillan taking over from the almost equally ancient Anthony Eden. Of far more interest to teenagers, however, was the arrival of new music from the United States via the London American label. London was the name Decca Records had used since the Thirties when selling British music to the States. The London American distinctive silver and black label framed in a vertically striped blue cutout sleeve has more than earned its place in history, and 1957 was a classic year for music and label alike.
