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 diverse musical styles, including: country, gospel, blues, hillbilly and R&B, genres which he had grown up listening to. This LP highlights the cream of Lewis' peerless recordings made for Sun Records, when he was at his creative peak and includes evergreens like "Great Balls Of Fire," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On" and "Wild One (Real Wild Child)." Down the Road With Jerry Lee has been newly re-mastered from the original tapes and pressed on audiophile-quality colored 10-inch vinyl. The sleeve includes definitive career-spanning notes by Clive Anderson who writes, "The Killer changed the face of both Rock 'n' Roll and Country Music." The Sun Rockabilly Legends Series is produced by Sun Entertainment Corporation president John A. Singleton and Charly Records founder Jean-Luc Young.
