"Hell, I never said I was the King of Rock ’n’ Roll... I said simply that I’m the BEST!"... So proclaimed Jerry Lee Lewis and never was he more profound. One of Rock ’n’ Roll’s most controversial yet enduring pioneer figures, The Killer has chalked up very nearly 100 worldwide hits in a recording career which is now in its sixth decade. Many of these hits are included on this four disc set, which traces Jerry Lee’s story from his legendary Sunrecordings of the ’50s, through to his subsequent Country successes and the wide variety of hits and classics he made for the Smash, Mercury, Elektra and MCA labels during the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s.

Reviews:

“With 106 songs comprising every major single and his best album tracks from the Fifties to the Eighties ... what an eye-opening collection it is.”

MOJO

 

"If ever a title told you what you’re getting it’s A Whole Lotta Jerry Lee Lewis. This attractively packaged box set is physically compact - the size of a chunky paperback. But the 4 CDs span almost the entirety of the Killer’s career... With 106 tracks comprising every major Lewis single between 1956 and 1986 plus a handful of album tracks, it really is the best of his work and, as the subtitle says, The Definitive Retrospective."

5 STARS

COUNTRY MUSIC PEOPLE

 

Easy to forget that, aside from the deathless early unique classics, the piano-pounding prince from Ferriday, Louisiana was a master of any  genre he cared to pursue. Here, Jerry, now 76, mines blues, country, gospel and beyond as more than four decades of his astounding legacy are raided for a handsomely presented and packaged boxset.
