AllMusic Review by

Time Life music collections are always solid, well-done affairs, and this one, which features classic early era rock & roll hits from 1956, is no exception. Every track is a certified winner, and it's always wonderful to hear such timeless gems as Carl Perkins' "Blue Suede Shoes," the Five Satins' immortal "In the Still of the Night," Fats Domino's "Blueberry Hill," Bill Doggett's sax and organ workout "Honky Tonk," and Little Willie John's edgy version of "Fever."
