AllMusic Review by

Time Life music collections are always solid, well-done affairs, and this one, which features classic early era rock & roll hits from 1957, is no exception. Every track is a hands down winner, and it's always wonderful to hear such timeless gems as Jerry Lee Lewis' "Whole Lot of Shakin' Goin' On," the Coasters' "Searchin'," and the Del Vikings' "Come Go with Me," and "Sue" or "Susie" seemed to be the popular name of the year in 1957, as evidenced by the inclusion here of the Everly Brothers' "Wake Up Little Susie," Dale Hawkins' "Susie-Q," and Buddy Holly's "Peggy Sue," each one a certified classic.
