"Rockin' the Oldies" was the fifth album of rock and roll music by Bill Haley and His Comets. Produced by Milt Gabler, the album was released by Decca Records in 1957. It was the first of three "themed albums" that Haley recorded for Decca. On this occasion the album consisted of re-recordings of popular standards, some dating back 30 years or more, but rearranged in a rock and roll style. For example, Haley's version of "The Dipsy Doodle" included new lyrics referring to Haley's past hits, "Shake, Rattle and Roll" and "See You Later Alligator". The album did not produce any hit singles.

The recording sessions that produced this album are notable for not including Haley's usual saxophone player, Rudy Pompilli. Sidelined by illness, his place was taken by Frankie Scott. [John W. Haley and John von Hoelle, "Sound and Glory" (Dyne-American, 1990)]
