  • This BGO reissue of two of Jerry Lee Lewis' Mercury albums catches the Killer in his prime. While it's true that many had forsaken the rock & roll iconoclast as just plain weird, the U.K., Europe, and many of the music's critics hadn't -- and thank God. These two albums, issued in 1971 and 1972, respectively -- though some of the tunes were recorded as early as 1960 -- are a pair of his finest. Check his reading of "C.C. Rider" (done in true Nashville/countrypolitan style), the piano boogie version of Joe South's "Walk a Mile in My Shoes," and a smokin' version of Fats Domino's "I'm Walkin'," just to name very few. Suffice to say that there isn't a track here that Jerry Lee Lewis fans can live without, and for those who thought the man was nothing but a caricature after the '50s, pair this two-fer with his recent rollicking Last Man Standing album and there is proof enough in this: Jerry Lee could still stomp your ass in an alley blindfolded. They don't call him the Killer for nothing. ~ Thom Jurek
