AllMusic Review by

Time-Life's Classic Country: 1950-1959 collects 30 classic tracks of the genre, including "Honeycomb" (Jimmie Rodgers), "I Walk the Line" (Johnny Cash), "Hey, Good Lookin'" (Hank Williams), "It's Only Make Believe" (Conway Twitty), and "Oh, Lonesome Me" (Don Gibson). This double-disc set is not a definitive overview of country-pop tunes of the era, but it's still a nice sampler of original hits.
