AllMusic Review by

Featuring 20 number one hit singles from the 1950s, this anthology showcases, in retrospect, an astounding variety of styles, illustrating in a fascinatingly fun fashion how a decade's music shifts and changes and moves forward; in this case as it marches toward rock & roll and the cultural restlessness of the '60s. From Lita Roza's "How Much Is That Doggie in the Window" to Elvis Presley's "Jailhouse Rock," it's all here.
