Treat me like a fool, treat me mean and cruel - but don't forget to send me a postcard.

From the sublime to the absurd, "Rip it Up!" captures de heyday of rock'n'roll in 31 tear-and-send postcards featuring Little Richard and Little Eva, Fats Domino and the Fleetwoods, the Everly Brothers and - of course - Elvis. Culled from rare rock artifacts like concert programs, fanzines, movie posters, and record jackets, "Rip it Up!" brings back the glory days in living, lurid color. Say hi to the old juke-joint gang with slick pics of Lloyd Price and Louis Jordan, the Cadillacs and Buddy Holly. Or say goodbye to the guy who dumped you at the drive-in with a shot of Paul Anka at his simpiest.

So go ahead, rip it up and rip them out. Your friends deserve it.
