    I have to disagree a little with the official review. First of all, I looked at the "Definitive" collection the reviewer prefered, and it does not seem to have more songs, as suggested, but rather the same number (24). Which collection of the two (though they are not the only choices, obviously) collections you'd like depends on what you are looking for. "The Definitive Collection" refered to by the reviewer only has a few songs from Lewis's early, and arguably best, period on Sun, the rest being a solid-looking collection from the years that followed. This collection here very much leans towards Jerry Lee at his most rocking, with no country songs or ballads to slow the momentum, unless the pop-sounding "Invitation" at the end counts. This is a great collection if you want his early, classic rock and roll and R&B persona almost exclusively. The only danger from this very, very well chosen collection from a rock and roll perspective, is that it might just leave you... well, "Breathless."

    I meant the above review for "20 Classic Hits." Actually, everything I said applies here as well, as both recordings focus on the same period and on the rock 'n roll/R&B sides of Jerry Lee, except that this collection does not end with a country song or two, as does 20 Classic hits, but has the fun rock and roll flavor from first to last.
