AllMusic Review by

Time-Life releases always feature great sound and interesting sequences, and this one, which chronicles the pop/rock hits of 1959, is no exception. Among the highlights are the Mystics' "Hushabye," Sam Cooke's classic "Only Sixteen," Eddie Cochran's gritty "C'mon Everybody," the raggedly intimate "You're So Fine" by the Falcons, and Johnny & the Hurricanes' infectious organ-led instrumental "Red River Rock."
