Album Notes

Liner Note Author: Keith Glass.

Raven's 2012 double-disc set Original Classic Albums 1965-1969 rounds up five of the Killer's LPs for Smash: The Return of Rock from 1965, Memphis Beat from 1966, Soul My Way from 1967, 1969's I'm on Fire, and the Linda Gail Lewis duet album Together from the same year. Although the music here has shown up on Bear Family's complete Smash box set, it has not been reissued in an original album format, so this set is certainly worthwhile in that respect and, when they're presented as a set, it's possible to hear these five albums as the transitional period they are, finding Jerry Lee slowly moving from rock & roll and R&B toward the hardcore country that gave him a commercial revival in the late '60s. Not the greatest music Jerry Lee made in the '60s, but there is plenty of wonderful stuff here that's well worth investigating. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
