Well, you have to find some fault in a "Best of Sun Rockabilly" compilation that doesn't have any Elvis Presley tunes on it, but this budget collection does offer a smattering of excellent tracks from some of the other Sun giants like Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis, as well as some lesser-knowns from the label roster. There are other, more extensive single-disc compilations of Sun rockabilly, but this might fit the bill for someone looking to add a bit of Sun flavor to a mixtape or party. And unlike most budget compilations, this one actually has decent liner notes.
