Summary

Summary

I Love Rock & Roll: Hits of the '50s is an excellent mid-line collection that contains 20 hits. Although the packaging is a little skimpy, all of the recordings are the original hit versions, which makes the compilation an excellent choice for casual listeners and the budget-minded. Among the highlights on Hits of the '50s are Jerry Lee Lewis' "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode," Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti," Carl Perkins' "Blue Suede Shoes," Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues," Wilbert Harrison's "Kansas City," Bobby Day's "Rockin' Robin," the Everly Brothers' "Bye Bye Love," Gene Vincent's "Be-Bop-A-Lula," the Clovers' "Love Potion No. 9" and Link Wray's "Rumble." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
