AllMusic Review by

This double-disc 48-track collection contains several of the biggest hits by Jerry Lee Lewis originally released on Sun Records in the late '50s and early '60s, including "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Great Balls of Fire," "Breathless," and "High School Confidential." Disc two of this set focuses on a cross-section of the Killer's earliest country sides, including "Release Me," "I Love You So Much It Hurts," "I Can't Help It (If I'm Still in Love With You)," and "Waiting for a Train." These tracks provide a preview of what was to come in the early '70s when Jerry Lee began recording straight honky tonk material for the Smash label.
