AllMusic Review by

This look-back set collects 40 recordings that hit the British Top Ten charts in 1956, including sides from Frankie Lane, Dean Martin, Doris Day, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, the Platters, Lonnie Donegan, and many others, offering a window back into another time when skiffle was just beginning to give way to rockabilly and rock & roll.
