There's 28 tracks here. The good ones -- such as "That's All Right," "Blue Moon of Kentucky," "Good Rockin' Tonight," and "Baby Let's Play House" -- are stunning. The bad ones, such as "Harbor Lights" are just boring. But you get a good idea of who the King was in his youth and you see patterns that will develop later in his career, such as always trying to become the next Dean Martin. But what you really need to listen to are those rockabilly songs. They are among the most educational tracks you'll ever hear.
