8 Compact disc boxed set, LP-sized. An Bear Family Special Products. Yellow label. Have circle of musical notes and staff around the entire label, with excepted of the bar wherein "Memphis, Tennessee" appear. The letters SUN with sun rays pressed in light brown at the top of the label. Bear Family and catalog number left from the center on the disc. On the back cover, Bear Family logo right from the center, catalog number in upper right. Complete edition of Jerry Lee Lewis 246 seminal Sun recordings, contains the original Sun singles, 30 unissued performances, 56 performances in stereo - most for the first time. Also included an 36-page DeLux booklet with many previously unpublished photographs and illustrations with liner notes by Colin Escott. Also included in the booklet, Lewis' complete session files. First, and most crucial, in these sets contains everything Jerry Lee Lewis ever recorded at Sun Records, all of the hits, alternate takes of virtually every song, with all of the false starts, aimless jams and the famed argument with Sam Phillips over playing the devil's music, rounding out the proceedings. It is as good a look into the inner-workings of a famous studio and legendary performer as can be found. Musically speaking, the previously unreleased cuts are astonishing to hear and will more than justify Lewis's vaunted reputation, something evident on the very first session when he ran through songs of every style and source, all with supreme confidence and total originality. The dynamic playing of his studio cohorts, Roland Janes on guitar and J.M. Van Eaton on drums, stand out no matter how varied the material was, and together with Lewis on piano they make a convincing case that they were the original power trio in rock.
