AllMusic Review by

That's Rock and Roll is one of many compilations that collects some of the biggest hits of the early days of rock & roll in one set. Very little can be said about this music that has not been said before, these are recognizable classics that represent some of the finest musicians of the time. Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Ricky Nelson, Little Richard, Ike and Tina Turner, and many others are all present with some of the biggest songs in rock & roll. Although a few of these songs may sound dated, many of them still pack the same punch that they did in the 1950s and 1960s when they were originally released. Anyone who loves classic rock will probably enjoy this compilation, although the obvious absence of Elvis Presely and Richie Valens may be a minor complaint. Still, this is a good collection and these are some fantastic songs.
