LEWIS, JERRY LEE
Probably one of the most controversial and disputable artists of his generation, Jerry Lee jumped on the rock and roll wagon with more ego and talent than anyone and lived to tell the tale.
When he broke onto the national scene in 1957, he was every middle-class parent's worst nightmare come true: a blonde-haired Southerner playing the piano with uncontrolled fury, while simultaneously reveling in his own sexuality.
Greatest! from 1961, Jerry Lee's second album originally out for the Sun Label, features his all-time hit "Great Balls Of Fire" along with a number of rockin' cuts, making this a terrific follow-up to his groundbreaking debut.
