Review

Curb's celebrates the 60th Anniversary of the legendary Sun studios with this double-disc set that just happens to contain 60 highlights. That's one for every year since Sun's 1952 inception and it gives the compilers lots of room to serve up the standards from Elvis, Jerry Lee, Cash, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Jackie Brenston, Howlin' Wolf, and Rufus Thomas, finding space for sides by Billy Lee Riley, Warren Smith, Sonny Burgess, Jack Clement, Carl Mann, and Charlie Rich. There's perhaps too much Johnny Cash here -- over a sixth of the set is devoted to him -- and while these cuts are here instead of better sides by lesser-known names, nothing here is bad and, for the price, this offers a lot of bang for the buck and illustrates why Sun remains legendary 60 years after its first release. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
