In the pantheon of the rock n roll greats, Jerry Lee Lewis probably vies for top spot with Little Richard as candidate for the top spot in the rock n roll pianist/singer category. From his roots in Americas rural south, brought up with church and country music, he became one of the pioneers of rock n roll piano, as well as one of the coterie of legendary names who began their recording careers at Sam Philips renowned Sun Studios in Memphis. When Elvis Presley left Sun for RCA, Jerry Lee became Phillips main money-spinner, although his high profile reputation as one of the first wild men of rock rebounded on him when scandal blighted his career. This great value 56-track 2-CD set comprises every track released by Jerry Lee in the US and UK, whether as a a or B side of a single, or as an EP or LP track, from his 1956 debut through to 1962, by which time he had scored all his Top 30 hits on both sides of the Atlantic. It's a thorough and hugely entertaining overview of his work, and naturally including gems like Great Balls of Fire Whole Lotta Shakin Goin on and Whatd I Say.
