AllMusic Review by

Legacys budget-line 2013 collection Playlist rounds up 14 of the Killer's killer Sun sides. Naturally, the highlights are the hits -- "Breathless," "Crazy Arms," "Crazy Arms," "High School Confidential," "Great Balls of Fire," "Whole Lot of Shakin' Going On" -- but nearly everything here is prime, fiery rock & roll tempered by a hint of country ("You Win Again"). By no means does this have all of Jerry Lee's great Sun singles -- it's missing some crucial cuts like "Break Up" and "Down the Line" -- but everything here is great, making this more than worth its affordable price.
