Like a heat lightening, scorching across the hot Louisania night! I had never heard much Jerry Lee Lewis when I first decided to pick up this box set. Truth be told, the early years of rock'n'roll had not interested me much until a few months ago when my younger cousin introduced me to some of the music. Its all fair and square, though, I got him hooked in classic country a few years back.
Anyway, this box set rocks; its an amazing collection of the early work of Jerry Lee Lewis who was one of the early greats of the genre. When you listen to this music you can not help but feel that all of the cool, rebeliousness, and power which are oozing from the speakers is rubbing off on you just a little bit.
Buy this box set and then, when your done, pick up the Johnny Cash Sun Records set as well, which is another amazing collection.Daniel McCollum – Amazon
