AllMusic Review by

The 1995 collection GREATEST HITS/FINEST PERFORMANCES features the creme de la creme of Carl Perkins' output for Sun Records, recorded between December 1955 through December 1957. Another legendary Sun artist, Jerry Lee Lewis, supplies the piano on several cuts, as all twelve tracks are winners. Expectedly, "Blue Suede Shoes," "Dixie Fried," "Boppin' the Blues," "Matchbox," and "Honey Don't" are all included, as well as a few covers, most notably Chuck Berry's "Roll Over Beethoven."
