AllMusic Review by

By combining strains of country and R&B, Bill Haley & His Comets came up with a nascent form (as early as 1951) of what would come to be known as rock & roll. Haley's biggest hits from 1954 are here, the venerable classics "Rock Around the Clock" and "Shake Rattle & Roll," but unfortunately these are not the original versions, but revisited stereo productions that seem just a little lackluster in comparison.
