AllMusic Review by

Essential Sun Rockabillies contains a few of the classic tracks associated with the legendary Memphis label, but mainly highlights 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 Charly release. Along with "Red Hot" and "Ooby Dooby" are lost artifacts by Johnny Powers, Harold "Conway Twitty"Jenkins, Kenny Parchman, Hayden Thompson, and Vernon Taylor.
