AllMusic Review by

#1 Hits of the 50's, Vol. 2 contains ten tried-and-true pop classics, including "Party Doll" (Buddy Knox), "This Ole House" (Rosemary Clooney), "Cry" (Johnnie Ray), "Heartaches by the Number" (Guy Mitchell), and "Oh, Lonesome Me" (Don Gibson), unfortunately all re-recorded long after their prime. The only exception is Frankie Avalon's "Why," which is the original hit released on Chancellor in 1959. No matter how attractive the bargain-bin price may be, don't get ripped off. Skip this.
