AllMusic Review by

The Very Best of Dorsey Burnette gathers highlights from the rockabilly/country singer/songwriter's solo career with ERA Records, including his biggest hit, the self-penned "(There Was A) Tall Oak Tree." Other definitive singles range from rockabilly-oriented material like "Great Shakin' Fever" to smooth pop songs such as "Hey Little One" and "That's Me Without You"; both styles complement Burnette's rich voice. The collection's tracklisting is virtually identical to the 1994 compilation The Best of Dorsey Burnette, and both of these albums are a solid overview of the high point of Burnette's career, but his fans might be better served by the Bear Family collection Great Shakin' Fever.
