Classic Rockabilly

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Proper's four-disc, budget-priced but hardly shoddy box Classic Rockabilly can't quite be called a proper introduction to rockabilly -- there are too many classic singles missing for that. What it can be called is a great second rockabilly box to get probably after Rhino's crash-course introduction Rockin' Bones, a master's course in cat clothes and rockin' rhythms.

Many of the best and biggest Sun sides from Elvis, Carl Perkins, and Roy Orbison are here, along with Gene Vincent's "Be-Bop-A-Lula" -- songs that are pretty close to very first rockabilly anybody ever hears -- and there is even a decent share of good second-tier rockabilly that isn't exactly uncommon including cuts from that aforementioned Rhino box. But there is also much more high-quality music that warrants further exploration by rockabilly fans of all stripes. Plus, there is a certain joy to the sequencing -- where all the songs about rockin' are followed by songs with "cat" in the titles, then a bunch of tunes about Cadillacs and bops and boogies, then finally nearly a whole disc of songs with "baby" in the titles -- which helps make this already fun set just a bit more of a gas.
