AllMusic Review by

This exhaustive set collects every single that entered any of the various Top Ten charts or lists in 1958, a time when the pop scene was changing, with early rock & roll making its presence felt and the old, the new, and the soon-to-be all mingling on the American airwaves, making this set not only interesting as a historical and archival collection, but just plain fun and fascinating just on its own, a sort of detailed musical Wayback Machine.
