Overview

Collections of Jerry Lee Lewis' Sun singles are a common occurrence: sometimes it seems as if Sun licenses out the hits to any label that comes calling, so there's a surplus of comps that cover the same territory, some in more detail than others, some providing a better experience -- both as listening and history -- than others. As the music itself sounds good no matter how it's heard, all that matters is the quality of the presentation, and Sundazed's 2009 set Sun Singles Collection ranks among the best comps of this material presented. Arguably, it may be the best, as it serves up the 24 A-sides the Killer released at Sun, running through them all in chronological order, giving the consumer all sorts of bang for their buck. Naturally, this doesn't have all the great music Jerry Lee recorded at Sun, and some may miss "Drinkin' Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee" that appeared on the previous Sun standard-bearer, Rhino's 1984 18 Original Sun Greatest Hits, but Sun Singles Collection is six tracks longer, adding such killer rock & roll as "Let's Talk About Us," "Break-Up," and "Hang Up My Rock & Roll Shoes," plus country sides like "I Could Never Be Ashamed of You" and "Old Black Joe" that hint at Lewis' range. Much of this can be heard elsewhere, either in truncated or complete form, or in editions that go further into his Mercury work (whether it's Universal's Definitive Collection and Gold or Bear Family's Rocks) but this serves up the best and biggest dose of Jerry Lee at his prime.
