Terry M. (tmulcahy) from ALBUQUERQUE, NM
Reviewed on 12/12/2017...
There are a few songs worth listening to on these three disks, but I had to skip over many others that were pure saccharine orchestrated pop, not the lively rock and roll, soulful rhythm and blues, and rocking rockabilly that gave the decade new music. Much of this is just 1930s and 1940s-style music that was still on the radio in the 1950s, already just for the elderly, and as such is worthwhile purely as nostalgia for them. I listened because I wasn't familiar with all the artists, but, even for those crooners I knew, these weren't their best. Yeah, if you're in your late 80s and 90s, you might use most of these to fall asleep to, but one listen was all I could take for most of it.
