#1 Hits of the 50s and 60s [Madacy]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Campbell
As part of the Madacy's #1 Hits compilation series, these 36 tracks provide only adequate representation of these artists at best. Unfortunately the songs here have been re-recorded (with the exception of "Kansas City," "Tequila," "Stay," and "Telstar" ) and should be avoided. If you're looking for the original versions of these hits from the '50s and '60s, check out Billboard's Top Hits series on Rhino.
