Rocks

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Bear Family's 2011 compilation Rocks rounds up 36 of Brenda Lee's hardest swinging tracks. There are hits here -- from "Sweet Nothin's" to the seasonal perennial "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" -- but the appeal to Rocks is how it digs deeper into her catalog, unearthing gems from her '50s heyday and beyond, including "Is It True" featuring guitar from Jimmy Page.
