The Greatest Ever Rock 'N' Roll Review

by James Christopher Monger

The boldly titled Greatest Ever Rock 'N' Roll collection relies solely on the familiar works of seminal early pop/rock artists like Roy Orbison, Dion, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Little Richard, Chubby Checker, and of course, Elvis Presley. As a compendium of the era it's pretty solid, and at 100 tracks and priced to move, it's a relative steal, but it's hardly the hip-shaking holy grail that its boastful title would suggest.
