A Whole Lotta Jerry Lee Lewis
Hell, I never said I was the King of Rock n Roll... I said simply that I m the BEST! So proclaimed Jerry Lee Lewis, and never did he make a more penetrating assessment. One of Rock n Roll s most controversial yet enduring pioneer figures, The Killer has chalked up very nearly 100 worldwide hits in a recording career which is now in its sixth decade. Many of these hits are included on this four disc set, which traces Jerry Lee s story from his legendary Sun Rock n Roll recordings of the 50s, through too his subsequent Country successes and the wide variety of hits and classics he made for the Smash, Mercury, Elektra and MCA labels during the 60s, 70s and 80s.
But his controversial sound bites all tend to blur the basic fact that Jerry Lee is one of the most talented musicians who ever lived. One of the all-time great vocal stylists and Rock & Roll s quintessential live performer, his genius is wholly instinctive. He turned up at Sun Records in 1956 with a style that was already more or less fully developed and which required neither compromise nor improvement. And he was cutting killers (pun intended) from his very first session.
Before long he began to rival Elvis - and had it not been for the underage bride scandal, which very nearly ended his career, who knows how big he could have been? But Jerry Lee is a born survivor. He went back out on the road and started again from scratch - although, as he once commented, From $10,000 to $250 a night is one Hell of a drop! and his vast recorded output since this incident, often producing up to 5 albums in a calendar year, is truly astonishing.
Perhaps even more surprising is the fact that his biggest-selling album of all (Mean Old Man) was released in 2010, which is evidence that Jerry Lee has still got what it takes.... Not that that fact has ever been in dispute as this fantastic collection makes clear.
