AllMusic Review by

Including 15 classic tracks recorded at Sam Phillips’ legendary Sun Studios in Memphis, TN, this set provides a quick and concise fly-over of the genre-defining music Phillips put together in the late 1950s, although naturally there’s a lot more to the story than just what is presented here. What is here, though, is immortal, including Elvis Presley’s “That’s All Right” and “Blue Moon of Kentucky,” Johnny Cash’s “I Walk the Line,” Jerry Lee Lewis’ “Great Balls of Fire,” and Carl Perkins’ “Blue Suede Shoes” and “Matchbox,” among others.
