AllMusic Review by

This fun 25-track set illuminates the versatile state of the pop music charts in 1958, and includes classic doo wop (Danny & the Juniors' “At the Hop”), sweetened country-pop (the Everly Brothers’ “All I Have to Do Is Dream”), R&B-laced instrumentals (the Champs' “Tequila”), poignant teen idol fare (Ricky Nelson's “Poor Little Fool”), smoothed-out folk (the Kingston Trio's “Tom Dooley”), and traditional vocal pop (Perry Como's “Catch a Falling Star”), among other things, suggesting that 1958 was a pretty good and varied year on the radio waves.
