Overview

20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection collects 12 highlights from Jerry Lee's Smash recordings, which means the first four tracks -- "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Great Ball of Fire," "Breathless," and "High School Confidential" -- are re-recordings. Good re-recordings, but re-recordings all the same. That doesn't really matter, since the remaining eight songs are all prime hardcore honky tonk from the killer. "Another Time Another Place," "What's Made Milwaukee Famous," "She Even Woke Me up to Say Goodbye," "Drinking Wine Spo-Dee O'Dee," and "Middle Age Crazy" are all classics, and the remaining three cuts are just a notch below their high quality. So, while 20th Century Masters may not deliver the classic Sun hits, it does provide a good budget-line introduction to his country work, which is still underappreciated by audiences who just know his rocking classics.
