Radio Classics of the 50s

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Cub Koda
This 14-track collection brings home the fact that it wasn't all rock & roll on the charts back in the 1950s. Pure pop from beginning to end, this features Top Ten favorites like Tony Bennett's "Rags to Riches," Doris Day's "Que Sera, Sera," Johnny Mathis' "Chances Are," Johnnie Ray's "Cry," Marty Robbins' "El Paso," Guy Mitchell's "Singin' the Blues," and Rosemary Clooney's "Hey There." Selections from the Four Lads, the Brothers Four, Johnny Horton, Joan Weber, Terry Gilkyson and the Easy Riders, and Louis Armstrong a nice cover of "Mack the Knife" complete the package.
