AllMusic Review by

That'll Flat Git It!, Vol. 5 mines the Dot Records vaults for rockabilly and rock & roll obscurities, and in so doing significantly overlaps with the Ace Records compilation Dot Rock 'N' Roll from the previous year. The two compilations have 20 tracks in common, but That'll Flat Git It!, Vol. 5 succeeds where Dot Rock 'N' Roll failed by including the Phantom's notorious rockabilly single "Love Me," the master for which is owned by Pat Boone! Also unique to this collection is a rock & roll performance by country star Cowboy Copas (as Lloyd Copas) and a second early rocker by Mickey Gilley. Ray Campi, Sanford Clark, and Leroy Van Dyke are a few of the better-known artists featured on this excellent-sounding and well-annotated collection, made especially for serious collectors of '50s rock & roll.
