AllMusic Review by

A motherlode of vintage rock & roll, the three-disc SUN RECORDS COLLECTOR’S EDITION brings together 30 classic tracks in their original versions. Except for the conspicuous absence of sides by Elvis Presley, it’s all here, from Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” to Roy Orbison’s “Ooby Dooby,” Carl Perkins’ “Blue Suede Shoes” to Jerry Lee Lewis’s “Great Balls of Fire.” That key artists such as Billy Lee Riley, Charlie Rich, and Rufus Thomas are thrown into the mix is just extra icing on the cake. Superb sound and packaging make this a must-have for first-wave rock-&-roll fanatics.
