This collection of 54 hits from the 1950s makes the perfect partner to "More Number 1 Hits from the 1950s" just released. This is a slightly earlier period with many more names from the standards era. Here you will find the likes of Al Martino, Lita Rosa, Ruby Murray, and Anne Shelton along with new and rising stars such as Frankie Vaughan, Lonnie Donegan and Tommy Steele. Less rock n' roll more middle of the road. The original recordings have been used and there is some surface noise but that is to be expected. Value wise a god buy as is the 2011 "More" 2 CD set.

This is a great CD with all the songs evoking memories of my early teenage years. Theis is the music that few radio shows play anymore; when it was new and exciting and which influenced everything else that has happened since. Extremely good value for money, I play it all the time!

A great collection of 50's gems, and great value as there are over 50 songs on it! If you're looking for the definitive sound of the 1950s, I'd recommend this, as its packed full of timeless classics. For those of you who weren't around during the 50s, this is a great representation of what 50s music is all about.

Bought this on the strength of one review. So glad I did. My husband loves this, and even I enjoy listening every now and again.
You can't go wrong. If you like fifties music buy this.

I already had most of the tracks on this CD, and purchased it for the few that I didn't have. Unfortunately, the second CD was missing. Very strange, as it was sealed. Must have been left out at he manufacturers. But I enjoyed the one CD anyway.

This is a great CD for driving to an appointment to which one is not looking forward, or after coming away from one that did not seem to go particularly well, when perhaps it is the job of the music to make things right in the mind. Soon you realise that it really was not so bad after all, and you carry on listening to Doris Day and the rest feeling much better!!

Bought this to entertain my mother who suffers from dementia and it has been the best thing ever. She sings along during the day and at night-time it soothes her to sleep. She is bedridden but manages to move her legs around the bed to the music which is great exercise for her. We have a baby monitor in her bedroom and I even find myself signing along to it.

I already have a single cd version of this, made by M&S. I have often used it to make up a round in music quizzes which have 'older' people there. This now allows me to make a couple of more rounds as it is a double and has, I think, all of the 50s No.1s

Great cd of original hits. Love it because they are never played on the radio, the Stargazers especially, and the original Jimmy Young's "Unchained Melody" who i believe wrote it? Highly recommended to bring back the memories of the 50's!
