What a find! This really is a great collection for us of a 'certain age' (over 60). It's amazing how many tracks you can remember all the words and singalong to. The only small criticism is that there are very few British singers featured & there were a lot of good ones around at that time.

I have been systematically buying CD's in the 100 HITS series but I MUST SAY that this is one of the best.It is very comprehensive,and covers most of the huge hits during that decade.In fact I WAITED patiently until the compilation was released and was not disappointed.Simply great.

I was looking for a compilation of '50's songs, popular in there day and one's that have crossed the barrier of time as I present a 50's show on Hospital Radio. This compilation turned out to be excellent for this with many number ones and lots of varying genres, rock, pop and ballads. They are all original recordings and of good quality, if you haven't already guessed, I would recommend that you make the purchase if you are looking foe 50's nostalgia.

If you're of the age that remembers the fifties with lots of nostalgia but you weren't really into rock'n'roll, then this collection is right up your street. I know r'n'r only came in in `55 though the really big years were `56 through to `59, so, no collection of this type should feature the music too heavily if its got any claims at being representatative. This one, however puts most of its rock goodies from roughly track 61 to 74 and pretty well ignores this form of music elsewhere i.e. r'n'r is well under-represented. There's not even a lot of what I'd term late 50's pop in here - "When" from the Kalin twins and "Diana" from Paul Anka are fairly isolated examples. However if you don't mind buying the equivalent 100 set on rock'n'roll then you've covered pretty well everything. Or, as I said in my opening sentence, perhaps, you're entirely happy with this set as it is and you prefer more of the dance band singer sound. All our tastes are different after all.

On the positive side there's a lot of decent music here, classy singers like Tony Bennett and Johnny Ray, interesting novelties like Tennessee Ford's "Sixteen Tons", and the odd one-off like Laurie London with his gospel "He's got the whole world in his hands". My personal favourite and one that really pointed the way to the future is the late, great Sam Cooke with "You Send Me".

Oh, and had you realised that Frankie Laine had cut "Hey Joe" before Jimi?

Absolutely wonderful selection of 50's music with all original recordings. It's everything you need to whisk you back to the time of 208, good beer and arrowroot biscuits. Buy and enter your own time machine.
