2.0 out of 5 stars Not the Original Recordings February 14, 2011
Format:Audio CD
These are not the original hits by the original artists, but rather remakes by the original artists or a member of the original group. Anyone who actually lived through those years would know this. Some of these rerecordings aren't too bad, some not so good, but they are clearly NOT the original hits.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed for the most part. July 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Some of the songs in this CD are wonderful, but there are enough mediocre songs on it that I chose not to play it at my husband's 74th birthday party.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mostly not the original songs from the 50's August 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD
If you are looking for a compilation of the true original #1 chart topping hits that were actually recorded and played on the radio during the 1950's this set is not for you. In many instances you have the original artists or a portion of the surviving original group members recording a recent remake of their original hits from the 50's. On each CD and CD package you'll see a note that says...

"All New Studio Recordings. (*) Denotes Original Hit."

Only 3 tracks feature the original artist performing the original song which include....

Venus - Frankie Avalon*
Why - Frankie Avalon*
The Wayward Wind - Gogi Grant*

If you bought this collection please don't get too upset, many times an artist or group (for some reason or another) do not get the hard earned royalties for the work they did during the original recordings and are trying to reclaim them for a source of deserved income. I actually enjoyed the music on this CD set, but I give it 2 stars for the tiny print disclaimer "All New Studio Recordings. (*) Denotes Original Hit." on the bottom of the CD package.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Nostalgia August 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, and so much more are included in this "dreamy" 50's hits collection. "In the Still of the Night"(not Whitesnake version although that is very good as well!), "Houndog", "Whole Lotta' Shakin", and too many to list here. If you like classic rock as a young fan or you were a teen then, this is a must-have for your collection! ORIGINAL HITS, ORIGINAL PERFORMERS. No unknown bands are in this collection. Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" is a personal favorite of mine and there is still a dozen more to list but after naming the ones I have, I am certain you get the idea. 50's HEAVEN! Nuff' said.
