Jerry Lee Lewis
Old Time Religion CD
Here are the best gospel recordings of Jerry Lee Lewis's career, presenting a rare glimpse of the preacher that he might have been.
At his core, Jerry Lee has always been a gospel singer. His earliest and best records have revealed that passion, even when he was singing about women and lovin'. Jerry's famous religious debate with Sam Phillips took place at the recording session for Great Balls Of Fire. His musical life has always been a tug of war between God and the Devil.
The truth is, these may be the best gospel recordings Jerry ever made in his long career.
"I believe in that old time religion!", he shouts, and proceeds to show us why, with a little spontaneous preaching and testifying between songs.
Accompanying liner notes by Sun Records historian Hank Davis examine the music and document the events in Jerry's life that led to these recordings on this particular Sunday morning.
These recordings capture a magic moment and are indispensible to any Jerry Lee Lewis fan.
