50s Hits with a Country Touch - Here's the List 9 Mar. 2011
By Roy F. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This applies to CD number: 8466-2-R. Songs are indicated to be remastered original hits. They sound very good. This is an eclectic song mix from 1950 to 1959, but the mood for the CD is maintained without stark changes in genre. Nice liner notes too. I wish all CDs were this good.

Tune list:
1. My Heart Cries for You - Dinah Shore
2. Be My Love - Mario Lanza
3. Slow Poke - Pee Wee King
4. C'est Si Bon - Eartha Kit
5. Cherry pink and Apple Blossom White - Perez Prado
6. The Cattle Call - Eddy Arnold
7. Dugaree Doll - Eddie Fisher
8. The Rock and Roll Waltz - Kay Starr
9. Heartbreak Hotel - Elvis Presley
10. Banana Boat (Day-O)- Harry Belafonte
11. Melodie D'Amour - Ames Brothers
12. Catch a Falling Star - Perry Como
13. Lazy Mary - Lou Monte
14. Oh Lonesome Me - Don Gibson
15. Send Me the Pillow You Dream On - Hank Locklin
16. Guess Who - Jesse Belvin
17. Makin' Love - Floyd Robinson
18. The Three Bells - Browns
19. Oh" Carol - Neil Sedaka
20. He'll Have to Go - Jim Reeves

A wonderful way to revisit the '50s! 18 Jun. 2000
By John A. Kuczma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This Nipper's collection does a marvelous job of representing the bewildering hodge-podge of sounds that made up the popular music of the 1950s. There is mainstream pop like Perry Como's "Catch a Falling Star", mainstream country like Hank Locklin's beautiful "Send Me the Pillow You Dream On" and the early rock sounds of Elvis Presley's "Heartbreak Hotel" and Neil Sedaka's "Oh, Carol."
Mario Lanza's "Be My Love" is nearly operatic, Perez Prado's "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White" represents the big band sound, and Harry Belafonte's catchy "Banana Boat (Day-O)" has a strong calypso character.
The mastering of this disc is very good and the sound quality may surprise you. The Nipper's 1950s GH discs are an excellent way to jump start a '50s collection or to just take a quiet journey back to a simpler musical time. Either way, this disc and its companion will provide many hours of listening pleasure. Highly recommended.

"Catch a Falling Star" in Real Stereo! 17 July 2000
By townsend@istar.ca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD compilation contains the only ever BMG released real stereo version of Perry Como's 1958 classic "Catch a Falling Star". For many years, RCA Victor denied the existence of these tapes, now referred to as binaural, where Perry's voice is recorded solely on one side with everything else on the other. Listening to Perry's vocal harmony with the Ray Charles Singers within this simple arrangement is remarkable . . . considering that it was never supposed to exist! RCA's release of this song, and others, subjected to electronic reprocessing to simulate stereo seems all the more ridiculous when you hear the real thing! This stereo version was also released by Time-Life within their series "Your Hit Parade" for the year 1958. "Catch a Falling Star" was the very first record certified as "Gold" by the Record Industry Association of America" and Perry received a Grammy that same year for his performance.

Among The Earliest Multi-Artist CD Compilations 17 Aug. 2007
By AvidOldiesCollector - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When this series first hit the market back in 1988 from BMG/RCA it was greeted enthusiastically by all fans of 1950's music, not only for the generous 20 selections offered (at a time when most only offered 10 to 12), but also the digitally remastered sound that made these golden oldies come to life again, the voluminous 6-pages of track-by-track notations by Ron Furmanek, Steve Kolanjian, and Patrick Snyder, and the great cover art by Christoph Hitz. Since then, of course, many of the selections offered have been included in numerous compilations, both for the individual artists involved and in other multiple-artist sets. And, in retrospect, if there was a fault it was in trying to cover a decade like the 1950s in just two volumes.

Because, in that span, RCA Victor, at 1,917, was second only to Columbia at 2,220 in terms of total hit singles, while Capitol came third 1,739 and Decca fourth at 1,178, so attempting to come up with a definitive 40 of Nipper's Greatest Hits was a fool's errand right from the get-go for producer John Snyder. But you know what? I and many other diehard collectors could easily fill out ten pages of titles that we feel would have been better suited to such a 2-volume set ... and sound arguments could then be made both for and against THEIR inclusion. So let's just consider the two volumes as a decent collection of "40 of Nipper's Greatest Hits" and leave it at that.

This one offers, in order, two from 1950, one from each of 1951 and 1953, three from 1955, two each from 1956 and 1957, four from 1958, and five from 1959 (Jim Reeves' He'll Have To Go hit its peak early in 1960). With the exception of tracks 6, 13, and 15 to 17, all were Top 10 on the Billboard Pop Top/Hot 100, and seven were # 1 hits (tracks 2,3,5,8,9,12 and 18). Tracks 11, 12, 13 and 16 to 20 are stereo while the remainder are mono.

Eddy Arnold's 1955 version of Cattle Call (he first recorded it back in the 1940s) only hit # 69 Top 100 but was a Country # 1, while Don Gibson's Oh Lonesome Me, also a Country # 1, made it to # 7 Top 100. Lou Monte's classic rendition of Lazy Mary (Luna Mezzo Mare) reached # 12 in 1958. In Hank Locklin's case, Send Me The Pillow You Dream On was a # 5 Country and a # 77 Top 100, Guess Who by Jesse Belvin topped out at # 31 Top 100 but was a solid # 7 on the R&B charts, and Floyd Robinson's Makin' Love (still not easy to find) settled at # 20 Hot 100 in 1959. Both The Three Bells and He'll Have To Go were huge hits on both the Country and pop charts.
interesting mixture of songs carefully remastered for cd format 19 April 2013
By P F - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
this cd mixes novelty songs with early rock and timeless country songs. jim reeves and hank snow thrown in with elvis, mickey & sylvia and the islley brothers... throw in perry como, della reese, mario lanza and more and it adds up to a collage of sound for the 50's that stirs the stew through 2013...
