Greatest Hits: Finest Performances Review

by Cub Koda

This would serve as a true greatest-hits package of Lewis' early Sun days, except it's missing "High School Confidential," "What'd I Say," and "Sweet Little Sixteen." "Whole Lot of Shakin' Going On," "Great Balls of Fire," and "Breathless" are here, however, flanked by "Crazy Arms," "End of the Road," "Move on Down the Line," and "Lewis Boogie." The big bonus for Lewis completists is in the production foul-up that puts yet another alternate take of "It'll Be Me" in place of the single or album version. If it wasn't for the couple of tracks of filler, this would be the perfect JLL hits set.
