"This is a great Jerry Lee record! The songs are picked from two or three LPs recorded in mid-eighties and almost every one of them is a winner! Most likely Jerry Lee isn't very sober on this one, but he's in control anyway. Backing band is pretty good and everything cooks... Jerry improvises lyrics loosely, just the way he does at his best, slightly drunk.. There is some real highlights, "My Fingers Do The Talking" is a brilliant fast rocker, so is also his driving rock'n'roll version of an old song "Why You Been Gone So Long"... .."Teenage Queen" starts lazily, but somehow he manages a hell out of it, smell of whisky comes through the speakers... "Rock'n'Roll Money" is a great forgotten classic, he really makes it his own... A late classic, his anthem "I Am What I Am" is also included... Great fun is his version of a funky B.B.King hit "Better Not Look Down"... On the ballad side, there's a fantastic, relaxed honky tonk-weeper version of "Only You"... ..You'll never need to hear the Platters original after this one..If you are a Jerry Lee fan, this is a must, and if you're a beginner, this one is a good place to start!"
