Country Top Hits of the Fifties

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
It's easy to slip back decades with this fun set of 20 classic country tracks from the '50s era, including Hank Snow's "I'm Moving On," Don Gibson's "Oh Lonesome Me," Elvis Presley's "Blue Moon of Kentucky," and Porter Wagoner's "Satisfied Mind," among many others. It was a different time in country music, and a true golden age for the genre. This is country radio some 60 years ago, and sure, it's nostalgic, but the sound of these recordings and the stories that they tell deserve to stand outside of time.
