AllMusic Review by Al Campbell

Joel Whitburn Presents: Top Pop Treasures spotlights original hits from a specific year by the artists who made them famous. This volume samples ten tracks from 1958, including the original versions of "Maybe Baby" (Buddy Holly), "Buzz Buzz Buzz" (Hollywood Flames), and "Guess Things Happen That Way" (Johnny Cash), in addition to strong tracks by Jerry Lee Lewis, the Chantels, and Jerry Butler & the Impressions. The only bad thing about this series is the extremely short playing time.
