Jerry Lee Lewis Hand Signed The Golden Hits of Jerry Lee Lewis LP

Jerry Lee Lewis (September 29, 1935 – October 28, 2022) was an American singer, songwriter and pianist. Nicknamed “the Killer”, he was described as “Rock and roll‘s first great wild man and one of the most influential pianists of the 20th century.”

The Golden Hits of Jerry Lee Lewis is an album by musician Jerry Lee Lewis that was released on Smash Records in 1964. This version is the UK release on the Philips Label )BL 7622) It was Lewis’s first album with the label after leaving Sun Records.

Although competent, the remakes on The Golden Hits of Jerry Lee Lewis could never measure up to the magic found on his early Sun sides. In his book Jerry Lee Lewis: Lost and Found, biographer Joe Bonomo writes at length about the album’s shortcomings: “The results were anaemic and odd, even four decades down the line.

The opening 25 seconds of ‘Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On,’ the first number tackled by Jerry Lee at the sessions, reveal the nature of the problem: so crude and essential as recorded by Jack Clement in 1957, the song is garlanded in Nashville with crispy-EQ’ed hi-hat percussion, an intrusive walking electric bass, and a syncopated rhythm guitar that feels like an annoying kid brother tagging along looking for some hijinks.

The reverb applied to Jerry Lee’s voice sounds contrived and artificial after Sam Phillips hands-on magic at 706 Union, and sweetened with chirpy female backing singers who were meant to complement but end up sounding as if they’d wandered into the wrong party.”

This good condition of the Golden Hits LP has been hand signed to the front cover in black ink by Jerry Lee Lewis. Obtained from an ex DJ’s personal collection, this product comes complete with a market leading unconditional 90 day money back guarantee and lifetime COA.
