This 20 track compilation features many of rock & roll's true pioneers along with one gigantic exception.
"20 Rock & Roll Greats" was released before the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame was established in Cleveland, Ohio. I must admit K-tel did a pretty good job of picking the selections on this album as fifteen of the twenty artists currently reside in the Hall Of Fame - Chuck Berry, The Everly Brothers, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bill Haley, Little Richard, Bo Diddley, Gene Vincent, The Coasters, Dion, Carl Perkins, The Platters, Bobby Darin, The Drifters, Gene Pitney and Wanda Jackson. All of these rock & roll legends are well-represented by one of their major hits.
