AllMusic Review by

Billboard Top Rock & Roll Hits: 1957-1961 combines five discs from Rhino's Billboard series in one slipcase. Anyone who already owns the original discs doesn't need this box set, but this is a nice way to get all five discs at one time, especially since they offer a good cross-section of pop, rock & roll and R&B hits from the late '50s. Among the featured hits are "All Shook Up," "Wake Up Little Susie, " "That'll Be the Day, " "Jailhouse Rock, " "School Day, " "Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On, " "At the Hop, " "Get a Job, " "Yakety Yak, " "Venus, " "Lonely Boy, " "Stagger Lee, " "Kansas City, " "Sleep Walk, " "Cathy's Clown, " "Save the Last Dance for Me, " "Sweet Nothin's, " "Walk -- Don't Run, " "Stay, " "Tossin' and Turnin', " "Quarter to Three, " "Runaround Sue, " "I Like It Like That, Pt. 1, " "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" and "Stand By Me."
