At Sun Records: Collected Works[CD]
Some sets come along and make all previous ones revolving around the same artist obsolete. This huge box does just that for rock ’n’ roll’s original 88-key wild man, in glorious Bear Family fashion. Let’s start with the trappings here. Along with the 18 CDs, you will find two hardcover, clothbound books (300 total pages of notes and photos), all contained in a clothbound slipcase. And on those 18 CDs: some 623 tracks totaling 23 and a half hours. This set cleans up the mess of all those countless earlier Killer comps, many of which boast of an unissued track here, an alternate take there...this definitive set collects EVERY surviving song, EVERY surviving take (complete and incomplete) and EVERY piece of fly-on-the-wall studio chatter captured during Jerry Lee’s legendary Sun era, and it took years to research and complete. You get every stereo and mono mix and all the original overdubs; rock ’n’ roll wouldn’t have unfolded as it did without these Jerry Lee Lewis Sun recordings, and now you can hear every single lyric and lick the man put down. Get ready to have your nerves shaken and your brain rattled by multiple takes of Whole Lot of Shakin’ Going On; Great Balls of Fire; High School Confidential; Breathless; What’d I Say; It’ll Be Me; Drinkin’ Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee; Goodnight Irene; Old Time Religion; You Are My Sunshine; You Win Again; My Blue Heaven; Sixty Minute Man; Lewis Boogie; I’m Feelin’ Sorry; I Forgot to Remember to Forget; Ooby Dooby; Down the Line; Milkshake Mademoiselle; Fools Like Me; Sexy Ways (Carryin’ On); Put Me Down; Crazy Heart; Wild One; Break Up; I’ll Make It All Up to You; I’ll Sail My Ship Alone; It Hurts Me So; Lovin’ Up a Storm; I Could Never Be Ashamed of You; Let’s Talk About Us; Baby Baby Bye Bye; Old Black Joe; Sweet Little Sixteen; Good Golly Miss Molly...one of the most impressively put-together rock ’n’ roll sets we’ve ever seen! Bear Family.
