The Essential Jerry Lee Lewis: The Legendary Sun Recordings

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Yes, there were many compilations of Jerry Lee Lewis' Sun recordings, of various sizes, before this two-CD set. And, yes, there are better single-disc compilations for those who just want the very best and most famous stuff, and better multi-disc sets for those who want to go into his Sun catalog in depth.
