AllMusic Review by

While it takes some bluster and conviction to claim any collection of rock & roll hits is the greatest ever, this three-disc, 61-track set, released to honor the 60th anniversary of the release of Bill Haley's "Rock Around the Clock," generally considered the first commercial rock & roll single when it dominated the radio air waves in 1954, is pretty darn good, with every track a bona fide classic, including sides from Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry, the Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Chubby Checker, Jerry Lee Lewis, Haley (of course), and many, many more.
