AllMusic Review by

Sun Records: The Sun Songbook contains many of the classic tracks associated with the legendary Memphis label, but it also includes some of the more obscure songs from Sun's vast catalog. One of the problems with these Sun compilation discs is they tend to feature the same 15 tracks over and over again. That isn't the case with this volume from Varese. Along with "Red Hot" and "Ooby Dooby" are lost artifacts by Carl Mann, Harold "Conway Twitty" Jenkins, Johnny Cash, Hayden Thompson, and Ray Smith.
