2 LPs on 1 CD: A TASTE OF COUNTRY (1970)/OLD TYME COUNTRY MUSIC (1972).
A TASTE OF COUNTRY originally released on Sun (114). OLD TYME COUNTRY MUSIC originally released on Sun (121). Includes liner notes by Mark Marymont.
Along with Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis pioneered the rock & roll sound of the '50s with his early recordings for Sun Records. Reissue specialist Collectables has paired two original Sun albums on this single disc. Lewis's frenzied piano style, equal parts barrelhouse and Little Richard, merged blues, country, and an unidentified third party to create a wholly unique and original style that we've come to know as rock & roll. As the years passed, however, Lewis would bring the country side of his sound more and more to the fore, scoring several country hits in the process.
As this disc makes plain, though, he was exploring country music as early as his Sun days. Jerry Lee's country music sounds like none other, though. Even when tackling material by an artist as canonical as Hank Williams (on "You Win Again" and "Your Cheating Heart"), the Killer invests the tunes with a touch of roadhouse R&B. Similarly, he turns "You Are My Sunshine" into a boogie-woogie number and explores the connection between blues and country on "Deep Elm Blues."
