AllMusic Review by

This three-disc set collects sides that hit the top of the country charts in the 1950s, including Hank Snow's "I'm Moving On," Lefty Frizzell's "Always Late (With Your Kisses)," and Don Gibson's "Oh Lonesome Me," among others, as well as four tracks from Elvis Presley ("Heartbreak Hotel," "Hound Dog," "Don't Be Cruel," "Jailhouse Rock") that might not technically be country but which hit the top of the country charts anyway.
