Synopsis

Amazon.com
When it came time to toss together Jerry Lee Lewis's first LP, producer Sam Phillips had plenty to draw on. In addition to the hits "Whole Lot of Shakin' Going On" and "High School Confidential," the record offered a tour of the tape boxes the Killer had filled in his first months with Sun Records--filled with everything from a stoic "Goodnight Irene" to sloppy, jubilant takes on "Ubangi Stomp" and "Matchbox." Even better stuff was left behind, but Phillips figured the 1958 market couldn't handle "Big Legged Woman." He was right; it could hardly deal with this. --Rickey Wright

CD Reviews

Jerry Lee's first album!
Maheen Wickramasinghe | Ontario Canada | 10/31/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jerry could really rock with his trademark piano style and he was also a great country singer! Songs like Good Nigght Irene proved that he could sing all kinds of music not only rock. When people think of Jerry Lee Lewis, the first thing they always seem to focus on are his early Sun hits such as Great Balls Of Fire, etc. People don't seem to take much notice of his later country material and this is such a shame. To me, Jerry Lee sounded beautiful singing country songs and I particularly love his version of You Win AGain and Green, Green, Grass Of Home. To get all of Jerry Lee's complete Sun work I highly recommend the comprehensive 8 CD box set put o ut by Bear Family. Great set! Great music! Rock on, Killer!"
