"Shakin' Stevens had been performing professionally for ten years before signing to a major record lable. Before then, the highlight of his career had been appearing as the mid/late 50s Elvis in the award-winning Elvis The Musical in London's West End. The Elvis tag was to follow him in subsequent years but despite occasional cover verions of Elvis songs (Blue Christmas was a UK number 2 hit in 1982), he established his own identity and had 38 charting singles in the UK, becoming the most successful artist of the 80s in Great Britain (ahead of Madonna, Michael Jackson and all others). He had the ability to update long-forgotten 50s hits such as This Ole House and Green Door, together with charting with original material, sometimes self-penned (Oh Julie). He continues to perform to this day and really should record a new album of the new songs he's introduced to his concerts."

"Shakin' Stevens, the greatest and grooviest rock'n'roller of the 80s had a lots of hits, but they are not his best songs, really good are songs between the hits, songs like vanessa, is a bluebird blue, brand new man and much more, so I say, buy this one, yeah, his greatest hits, they are really good - so how good must be the rest! Look out for LPs like HOT DOG, SHAKY, GIVE ME YOUR HEART TONIGHT and feel yourself good, dance around your house and always look on the bright side of life. PADDY"
Polished but w/ all the energy

"Shakin Stevens was the best of all worlds. He had all the edge and energy of traditional rock and roll and rockabilly, yet his recordings were well produced w/ great musicians. Apparently, he's making a comeback based on the U.K. version of Hit Me Baby, One More Time and I hope he makes it. They guy was a fabulous singer and performer. No one who likes good pop/rock in the 50's vein will dislike this guy."
