Product Description:

Top Hits of 1956 contains 20 tracks from traditional pop artists who were big prior to the coming rock & roll outbreak. This collection includes only one certified rock & roll song ("Blue Suede Shoes" by Carl Perkins); the remainder includes Tennessee Ernie Ford, Eddie Fisher, Johnnie Ray, and the Kay Starr hit "Rock and Roll Waltz," which was anything but. It's not a definitive overview of pop hits of the era, but it's still a nice sampler of original hits, not re-recordings, from 1956. ~ Al Campbell

Rating 5.0 Great Collection of Hit Parade Music Music Lover: from New York -- March, 26, 2005

This album, although having a few rock 'n' roll songs by the Platters, Guy Mitchell and Carl Perkins, covers the years top hits very well. These top hits collections are the best I've seen in a long time.
