AllMusic Review by

Big 3’s three-disc set Buddy Holly & the Rock 'n' Roll Giants devotes two of its discs to Buddy’s classic recordings and gives the last disc over to The Rock 'n' Roll Giants -- a collection of sides from the likes of Fats Domino, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Gene Vincent, Little Richard, Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochran, Bill Haley, Roy Orbison, and the Everly Brothers that also finds space for Bobby Charles, Johnny Burnette, Big Joe Turner, Lloyd Price, the Robins, and Tommy Scott, among others. Not every song selection here is spot-on, either for Buddy or for the Giants, but no song is bad and this delivers a lot of bang for its budget-line price.
