The Ballads Of Jerry Lee Lewis on CD

With 'Ballads' Bear Family presents the soulful and sentimental side of 'The Killer.'

27 beautiful Rock 'n' Roll and Country ballads recorded between 1956 and 1963 for Sun Records.

Songs by Charlie Rich, Hank Williams and others as well as selected favorites from the Tin Pan Alley catalog.

Elegant digipak with extensive booklet and detailed liner notes by Chicago music expert Bill Dahl.

No certified 1950s legend rocked harder than Jerry Lee Lewis. His immortal Sun Records hits stand among the cornerstones of rock 'n' roll, and Bear Family has spotlighted those classics on plenty of seminal LP and CD packages over the years. But the Killer loved country and rock 'n' roll ballads too-tears-in-your-beer weepers that he delivered with the same swaggering panache that he brought to his pulverizing rockers. He revived his career in 1968 by re-embracing that side of his persona, but even during his Sun glory years, Lewis prolifically delivered quality ballads-as this new collection, spanning 1956-1963, generously underscores. Jerry Lee rolls through gems by Hank Williams (one of his primary heroes), in-house bard Charlie Rich, a couple of Tin Pan Alley chestnuts and a taste of the blues, and anything else that might have struck his free-wheeling fancy during his unbeatable Sun tenure.
