When Jerry Lee Lewis walks on-stage, he provokes uproar just by standing still... And from the moment he hits the keyboard, hands raking and floating around the mic stand, hair flying, he leaves no one in any doubt about who gives the greatest live show on earth. One of the few serious contenders to Elvis Presley's title of the King of Rock 'n' Roll, Lewis made his finest recordings during his early years with Sun Records.
Whilst there he recorded prolifically, encompassing the diverse musical styles, including: country, gospel, blues, hillbilly and R&B, genres which he had grown up listening to.
This new 10" vinyl highlights the cream of Lewis' peerless recordings made for Sun Records, when he was at his creative peak and includes "Great Balls Of Fire", "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On", and "Wild One (Real Wild Child)".
Originally released January 2017 on the legendary Sun Records label via Charly, Down The Road With Jerry Lee has been newly re-mastered from the original tapes and pressed on audiophile-quality 10-inch vinyl, the first 1,000 of which are pressed on limited edition cyan vinyl. The sleeve includes definitive career-spanning notes by Clive Anderson.
The Sun Rockabilly Legends Series is produced by Sun Entertainment Corporation president John A. Singleton and Charly Records founder Jean-Luc Young.
The Killer changed the face of both Rock 'n' Roll and Country Music
