AllMusic Review by

Despite an initially promising track listing, 21 Winners: Rock 'n' Roll Hits of the 50's disappoints: only one of the songs included -- Wilbert Harrison's "Kansas City" -- is presented in its original version. The rest are stereo re-recordings, which might be acceptable to casual fans of '50s music, but anyone who wants the original versions of the Coasters' "Young Blood," the Platters' "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," and the Crests' "Sixteen Candles" should look elsewhere.
