The Legendary Sun Recordings Out 21st February 2005
The Metro Doubles label on Union Square Music celebrates the original hell-raising Louisiana rock ‘n’ roll legend, Jerry Lee Lewis with a definitive double CD retrospective of his early Sun Record sessions.
Hellfire Boogie! The Legendary Sun Recordings feature all of Jerry Lee Lewis’s early hits alongside rare takes and includes a full account of his music and turbulent personal life by writer and broadcaster Joe Cushley. The album will complement the brand new Lewis studio album scheduled for 2005, The Pilgrim which features collaborations with the Rolling Stones, B.B. King, Bruce Springsteen and more.
Jerry Lee Lewis’ late 1950s sound pioneered a mix of floor-shaking boogie woogie piano with gospel, county and plenty of dynamite showmanship- when Jerry Lee pitched up piano stools ran for cover!
