All songs are original hits by original artists.
Of 55 CDs of 1950s songs that I own, this is easily the best.
1/4/06 Update: Whoever put this collection together did more than simply pick songs based on sales charts, because two of my personal favorites that didn't chart very high ("Love Potion No. 9" and "Shout") are included.
On "Since I Don't Have You", there is a faint glitch toward the end. I've heard this on two different copies of this CD.
"La Bamba" cuts off abruptly. Other copies of this song may also have this, but I noticed it here.
"Shout" has a tic, the kind of sound you get from a vinyl record.
There may be other quality questions. I haven't reviewed all of the tunes carefully since I didn't need all of them.
Some people might think I'm being picky. Maybe I just notice more because I've done a lot of editing to remove noise when transferring from vinyl to CD. In my opinion, all songs on published CDs should have been carefully edited.
FYI: I'm a record collector of 50 years and a sometimes deejay.
