This quintessential LP edition includes The Killer’s (as Lewis was also known since his teens) sensational debut album, Jerry Lee Lewis, originally released by the legendary SUN label in 1958. Whether singing a melancholy country ballad, a lowdown blues, or a blazing rocker, Lewis’ wholesale commitment to the moment brings forth performances that are totally grounded in his personal style.

This can be heard on handkerchief weepers like “It All Depends,” “Fools Like Me,” Ray Price’s “Crazy Arms” and a staid “Goodnight Irene,” as well as rockabilly numbers like “Don’t Be Cruel,” and “High School Confidential.” Lewis even rocks on material like Hank Williams’ “Jambalaya” and his personal rendition of the traditional song “When the Saints Go Marching In.” Every effort has been made here to replicate the incredible vibrancy of the original Sun records.

In addition to the original masterpiece, this WaxTime collector’s edition contains 2 bonus tracks from the same period: “Big Blon’ Baby,” and Jerry Lee’s second single – the fast-paced smash “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On.” A fundamental cornerstone of rock & roll, Lewis’ house-rockin’ boogie, and heart-stoppin’ piano sound left an indelible mark on popular music that has withstood the test of time. These seminal Sun classics remain cornerstones of rock & roll’s early foundations.
