AllMusic Review by

With 60 tracks spread over three discs, this budget box set actually presents a pretty varied survey of what played on American jukeboxes in the 1950s, with selections ranging from the Everly Brothers' "All I Have to Do Is Dream" and Fats Domino's "Blueberry Hill" to the raw, loose power of Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues," the soulful honk of the instrumental "Raunchy" by Bill Justis, the Kingston Trio's reconstituted folk murder ballad "Tom Dooley," the easy country of Don Gibson's "Oh Lonesome Me," and the wonderful throwback pop of the McGuire Sisters' "Sugartime." That's pretty varied, and there's plenty here, making this a nice, affordable travel package for that trip back in time.
