An Interesting Concept,
This review is from: The First US Top 100 November 12th 1955 (Audio CD)
Some of these tracks never saw the light of day in the UK, although of course in some instances British versions did. I was born in 1944 and there are number here that I do not recall at all, although I do remember my older brother continually playing The Yellow Rose of Texas on his wind up gramaphone.
I have played all the CD's and by and large I enjoyed listening to them, but I wonder how many times I will play CDs 3 and 4 in particular given that these represent the bottom half of the Top 50 and at times the quality reflects this. I tend to collect albums like this, it can be interesting to listen to recordings that did not make our charts. However if all you want to do is relive your younger days then you might want to concentrate on albums like the Dreamboats& Petticoats series, you can be fairly certain that you will remember all of them.
So for "anoraks" like me a good buy, but maybe not for everybody.
