The Greatest Ever Rock 'N' Roll

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
The boldly titled Greatest Ever Rock 'N' Roll collection relies solely on the familiar works of seminal early pop
ock artists like Roy Orbison, Dion, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Little Richard, Chubby Checker, and of course, Elvis Presley. As a compendium of the era it's pretty solid, and at 100 tracks and priced to move, it's a relative steal, but it's hardly the hip-shaking holy grail that its boastful title would suggest.
