Description by OLDIES.com:
A collection of 20 of the biggest pop hits of the 50's. All original hits by the original artists that made them great. Includes the absolute hits "El Paso" by Marty Robbins, "Sixteen Candles" by The Crests and "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" by The Platters.
Top Hits of the 50s: Absolute Hits is a decent single disc highlighting 20 pop singles released in that decade. Along with the original versions of tried and true radio classics by Everly Brothers, Ritchie Valens, and the Platters are less than obvious country-pop inclusions by Marty Robbins, Johnny Horton, Guy Mitchell, and Jim Ed Brown & the Browns. ~ Al Campbell
