Review

Review Text Priority's Chart Toppers series is an excellent budget-line collection, offering a strong selection of 15 original hits, grouped by a specific theme and decade, on each disc. Chart Toppers: Dance Hits of the 50s combines rock & roll, doo wop, rockabilly, R&B, and pop hits -- an eclectic bunch, to say the least, but the variety helps capture the feeling of the decade. A few of the songs haven't dated well, but for the most part the selection of songs is terrific, albeit a little predictable. Among the highlights on the disc are Bill Haley's "(We're Gonna) Rock Around the Clock," Jerry Lee Lewis' "Great Balls of Fire," the Champs' "Tequila," Shirley & Lee's "Let the Good Times Roll," the Coasters' "Charlie Brown," Buddy Knox's "Party Doll," the Royal Teens' "Short Shorts," the Diamonds' "The Stroll," Kay Starr's "The Rock & Roll Waltz," and Harry Belafonte's "The Banana Boat Song (Day-O)." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
