This generous four-disc set collects almost 70 original recordings of '50s hits, including songs by Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and Johnny Cash. Though the collection is undeniably comprehensive and eclectic, spanning rock songs like "All Shook Up" and Mickey & Sylvia's "Love Is Strange," as well as vocal pop standards like Perry Como's "Magic Moments" and Doris Day's "Whatever Will Be, Will Be [Que Sera Sera]" there's little rhyme or reason to the track list, and some of the juxtapositions make for a less than smooth listening experience. Still, for listeners who don't mind hunting and pecking, this is more interesting than the average '50s comp.
