"I agree with the review above, anytime you have a chance to find (and grab) the original recordings from a legendary artists, take advantage of it. Rhino is a great company that has devoted its time to restoring and making available material from everyone from Jerry Lee Lewis to Captain Beefheart to Alex Chilton.This compilation of 18 classic Jerry Lee Lewis songs is a treasure. And can I tell you, as a 28-year old listener who was born well after Lewis's heyday (I was born in 1971), that this man's music still sounds as vital today as it did over forty years ago? I find myself bouncing along not only with the obvious radio hits (Great Balls of Fire and Whole Lotta Shakin Goin On), but the lesser-known cuts as well (I love Big Blon' Baby). Lewis, along with Little Richard, paved the way for piano-playing rockers, and Lewis also straddled the line between rock and country; fans of both genres will find much to savor here. I wholeheartedly recommend this fine disc."
"The Killer" in all of his original glory!

"In this Cd,unlike so many Jerry Lee Lewis compilations,you get to hear the original Sun Records recordings of his best and most popular tunes.When you hear these songs,you begin to understand why his influence on later rock and roll artists is so strong.The Reckless intensity he displays here on such classics as "Whole lotta shakin' goin' on","Breathless",and on such wild and quirky versions of Ray Charles'"What'd I Say",and the old Hank Williams favorite,"Jambalaya",is rarely heard anywhere else in his long and storied career.If you want to find out what all the fuss was about,this Cd is a great place to start."
