"As a long time fan of the Killer I was very surprised to find these "lost" tracks which I never knew existed. This compilation literally blew me away. There's not a song on this CD that's not top-notch.
OK, "Whole Lotta Twistin' Goin' On" is basically "Whole Lotta Shakin'" with a few lyric changes. Still, Lewis manages to make it entertaining. His instro rendition of "In the Mood" is dynamite and I've never heard a bawdier version of "Big-Legged Woman". If you enjoy Jerry Lee at all this is a "must" buy!"
Tracks have been released on other compilations.

"Strictly speaking, not a "rare" recording. With the exception of the bonus tracks, all titles have been released on the Bear Family "Complete Sun Recordings.." boxed set. CD quality is good. "Hong Kong Blues" is an outstanding track, disappointing only in that it needs more verses to be viable. "Sail Away" sung with Charlie Rich is also good. "Twistin'" is the same song as "Shakin'". No one expects "Birthday Cake" to make it to market, especially JLL."
