Time-Life's Fabulous Fifties series spotlights original hits from a specific era, or theme, by the artists that made them famous. Volume five samples 15 tracks that made the pop charts in the mid- to late '50s, including "Misty" (Johnny Mathis), "Earth Angel" (the Crew Cuts), and "Standing on the Corner" (the Four Lads) in addition to strong tracks by Teresa Brewer, Kitty Kallen, Doris Day, Phil Harris, and Neil Sedaka. A worthy collection for casual fans of easy listening hits.
