Overview

BGO's 2013 two-fer She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye/There Must Be More to Love Than This combines Jerry Lee Lewis' 1970 album with its 1971 sequel, both ranking among his finest country efforts. She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye slightly edges out its sequel in terms of consistency, partially because it's anchored on a couple of major hits ("Once More with Feeling," "She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye"), but There Must Be More to Love Than This is no slouch, containing a bunch of pure hard country, lots of barroom weepers and barrelhouse rockers. As always, Jerry Lee never does anything halfway -- witness how he refashions Charlie Rich's "Life's Little Up and Downs" to suit his own purposes, turning it into something defiant, not mournful -- and that's the appeal. The Killer always found ways to turn songs, either familiar or unknown, into his own, and during the early '70s he was at a creative peak (and something of a commercial one, too), so this is laden with rich, wonderful music that rewards many repeat listens.
