Rock -N- Roll's Greatest Hits of All Time, Vol. 1: The 50's

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
The only irritating thing about this two-disc set of bona fide 1950s hits, each in the original single version, is that it very easily could have been a single disc. Radio-ready songs from the 1950s seldom even came close to three minutes in length, and to only stick ten songs on a disc, as is the case here, well, do the math.
