 Jerry Lee Lewis & Sam Phillips

Jerry Lee Lewis & Sam Phillips

It Probably seems a little unusual for a record manufacturer to write his own liner notes for an artist’s album. But in this case, Jerry Lee Lewis first LP, I want to express personally how proud Sun Record Company is to present this fabulous showman in his interpretations of a variety of songs. Jerry Lee Lewis, of course, is regarded as very epitome in rock & roll. His biggest single sellers "Whole Lot Of Shakin going On" "Great Balls Of fire" and "Breathless" have been characterized by the big beat and Jerry Lee’s natural uninhibited vocal style. This is the kind of singing which brought him back to the Steve Allen sho for an encore one week after his first appearance in the summer of 1957. And it’s his magnetic performances of tunes like these that make the kids get beside themselves when Jerry Lee plays personal appearances. But even so jerry Lee Lewis is versatile you’ll see what I mean when you listen to this LP. He goes from a wild "High School Confidential" ( which is from his MGM movie of the same name ) to a tender ballad such as "Fools Like Me" with no difficulty whatsoever. In fact Jerry Lee sings a mean ballad.

He gives the old folk tune "Goodnight Irene" a blues-y shuffle interpretation I’d be willing to bet you’ve never heard before. Likewise, "It All Depends" is given full Lewis treatment and if it doesn’t move you, you’ve got no sentimentally. Jerry Lee’s version of "When The Saints Go Marching In" will probably strike you as something quite out of the ordinary. Only a southerner, who has attended camp meetings or other revival type gatherings, can fully appreciate the quality of fervor and abandonment that Jerry Lee gives this selection. Where as " When The Saints Go Marching In" is thought of now mostly as a Dixieland standard, this version goes back to it’s origin as an authentic fundamentalist religious song. I Believe this is one of the finest albums ever assembled Truly showing the limitless versatility and talent of Jerry Lee. Playing and singing for here is jerry Lee Lewis Sam Phillips the President Of Sun records May, 1958
