All 18 of the tunes assembled here were very big hits on the pop charts in the middle of the rock & roll era, and pop hit records they most assuredly were and are with nary a hint of rock & roll wildness to be found in them. Big hits aboard in tracks like "That's All I Want From You" by Jaye P. Morgan, "I Enjoy Being a Girl" by Pat Suzuki, "My Coloring Book" by Kitty Kallen, "Don't You Know" by Della Reese, "Crying In the Chapel" by June Valli and "C'est Si Bon" by Eartha Kitt. Selections from Mindy Carson, April Stevens, Gisele McKenzie, Sunny Gale, Toni Arden, Kay Starr, Dinah Shore, Teddi King, Gogi Grant, Georgia Gibbs and Rosemary Clooney complete the package. Another interesting collection (along with its companion volume, Lost Male Hits of the 50's) of what was happening in the pop charts right when rock & roll was the dominating force in pop music.
