AllMusic Review by

Bellevue's Saturday Night Party series, like other releases from the label, features only a handful of original recordings per volume. Poorly recorded live versions and studio re-recordings are far more common. The label specifies which selections are live, but it does not bother to note which ones are inferior studio remakes. That alone is a case for ignoring the whole series. Among the many reasons to avoid Saturday Night Party: '50s Party, Vol. 2 are substandard versions of Fats Domino's "Ain't That a Shame," Marty Wilde's "A Teenager in Love," the Kingston Trio's "Tom Dooley," Bill Doggett's "Honky Tonk," and Jim Lowe's "The Green Door."
