Lives for gear
I'd say it's fairly easy to make anything sound good if you're somewhat experienced and if you don't have to push things. I mean compression, eq etc.

Good room, good performances all natural with Maybe some master bus eq (if that was available early 50s) and voila!

Professionals at that time where also very good at their instruments. Today it's really all over the place since it's more about marketing hype. Not saying that wasn't relevant back then too, but at least you had to be able to perform and could not hide and disguise things with FX, Autotune etc.

And what people pointed out it was all about the vocals back then.
