  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (p.78) - "[T]hese pieces - by turns jovial, haunting, and chilling - form an unforgettable mosaic of anxious Americana." - Grade: B
    Dirty Linen (p.55) - "ATOMIC PLATTERS is one of the best-conceived and most enjoyable boxes in the entire Bear Family catalog....It certainly brings back the fear, foolishness and out-and-out madness of the ear..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Spanning country, R&B, rock'n'roll, doo wop and rockabilly this box shows the fertility of American music at a deadly time."
    Record Collector (magazine) (p.79) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t collects together rock'n'roll, R&B, soul, hillbilly music and pop, either warning us of the fearful dangers of Communism and genuine threat of atomic war, or more playfully using The Bomb and Commie-baiting as teenage metaphors..."
    Uncut (magazine) (p.110) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Over 100 songs, ranging from The Louvin Brothers to Bo Diddley address the post-war stand-off between America and the USSR."
