AllMusic Review by

This budget ten-song selection delivers the goods in a big way, featuring Buddy Holly and the Crickets' "That'll Be the Day," and "Peggy Sue," Buddy Knox's "Party Doll," and Jerry Lee Lewis' "Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On." Also aboard are a pair of classics from Elvis ("All Shook Up" and "Jailhouse Rock"), Chuck Berry ("School Day"), and the Everly Brothers' "Wake Up Little Susie." Top-flight transfers and even something resembling liner note information on the inside booklet -- a bonus in budget discs -- makes this one to pick up the next time you see this one in the bin.
