Description by OLDIES.com:

We continue our highly popular and successful America's Greatest Hits series as we work back through the 1950s, this time with an expanded 4-CD set edition to sit alongside the existing single CD 1955 edition (ACRCD222) originally released in 2006 before we introduced the 4-CD format in recent years. This great-value 109-track collection comprises every record which charted in the Top 15 of any version of the Billboard singles chart (Top Sellers, Most Played by Jockeys, Most Played in Jukeboxes) or the Cashbox chart during 1955 (it omits certain records which peaked in 1956 and which have already appeared in our America's Greatest Hits 1956 collection). As with all these collections it features all the biggest hits of the year, but also includes a number of lesser known records which are not heard very often and which have not been readily available on CD. As always, it includes a substantial 12,000-word booklet with a commentary on every track., and it's a must for collectors of our chart-based anthologies.
