Simply Astounding!

"This collection is a nice introduction to the music of the 50's. It starts off with Elvis and really doesn't quit. Buddy Holly, The Platters, Everly Brothers, Isley Brothers, so many to choose from. My two favorites are "It's All In The Game" by Tommy Edwards and the original "Love Potion #9" by the Clovers. A great disc."
New York's Oldies Station Rocks On.

"Nostalgia, much as love, is subjective. This collection is noteworthy for its eclectic selection. Most of the songs are from the vintage years 1956-1959. It includes three by Elvis. Oldie albums frequently ignore the King. It also presents rare masterpieces such as Ed Townsend's "For Your Love," The Impalas' "Sorry (I Ran All the Way Home)," and "It's Only Make Believe" by Conway Twitty. Snuggle in as Johnny Ace sings "Pledging My Love," and Johnny Mathis offers "Chances Are." The Isley Brohters' "Shout (Parts 1&2)" rocks your CD player for almost 5 minutes. Drift off to sleep with Santo & Johnny's "Sleepwalk." WCBS FM 101.1 is New York's oldies station. The cover tells us that much. The liner notes include brief comments on each of the 25 songs. If you think that U-2 is a submarine, and that Britney Spears is famous only for Pepsi commercials, you are a perfect fit for this CD. Toe-tapping, finger snapping fun in the best tradition. Get your best girl, comb back your DA, and boogie on over to the drive-in. You're so hip you won't even eat a square meal! This is a superior sampling of nifty-fifties rock, R&B, and pop. Dig it. ;-)"
