AllMusic Review by

Like its counterpart, Lo Mejor del Rock & Roll, Lo Mejor de los 50s features a group of energetic yet unknown studio musicians translating American rock & roll favorites into Spanish. So, "Summertime Blues" becomes "Poptitos," Del Shannon's "Two Silhouettes" becomes "Siluetes," and so on. While there will be the novelty factor that comes with hearing these oldies standards performed in Spanish, the covers would probably be watered down in any language, since little of this material packs any kind of punch. One standout is "Creo Estar Soñando," which coos with reverb guitar and a genuinely dreamy '50s vibe.
