Essential Willie Nelson CDs (2003) Top Seller
Sings the Country Music Hall of Fame Hits, Vols. 1-2 buy CD music This CD commemorates Willie Nelson's 70th Birthday (April 30, 2003).
The catalog of Willie Nelson is so vast and rich that assembling an "essential" collection of only one or two discs seems nearly impossible. RCA's single-disc 1995 attempt was admirable and worthy, but doomed by space limitations. With a bit more room to move, Legacy's roomier two-disc collection is about close as anyone could hope to come. We get the full view of the great singer/songwriter's artistic journey.
"Hello Walls" and the evergreen "Crazy" hail from the days when Nelson was tooling around Nashville as a songwriter for hire but mystifyingly unable to connect as a solo artist. His transformation into a counterculture icon via the '70s "outlaw country" movement is marked by the likes of "Me and Paul" and "Bloody Mary Morning." His tremendous skill as in interpreter can be heard in such standards as "Blue Skies" and "Georgia on Mind," which helped make him a crossover success in the STARDUST era. Latter-day collaborations with everyone from Aerosmith ("One Time Too Many") to U2 ("Slow Dancing") show Willie's mercurial, eclectic nature. Add it all up and a portrait comes together of a man whose artistic vision has carried him across decades and stylistic shifts aplenty and seen him through in style.
Recorded between 1961 & 2002.

|Killer Country CD (1995)
Sings the Country Music Hall of Fame Hits, Vols. 1-2 CD music Even though Jerry Lee Lewis was one of the best-known rock and roll singers in the world at the start of the sixties, by 1968 personal problems and his failure to develop his trademark sound made him a rock and roll has-been. With his rock and roll career seemingly over, Lewis turned to recording straight country music and was quickly rewarded with one of his biggest hits ever, "Another Place, Another Time." Having seen the light, Lewis threw himself into country music and soon racked up a string of country hits like the jukebox classic "What's Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made A Loser Out Of Me)" and "There Must Be More To Love Than This."
Lewis' songs generally eschewed the cloying strings and corny backing vocalists that blighted much of the music that was coming out of Nashville at the time in favor of down-to-earth, back-to-basics performances that showcased his booming voice and pounding piano. Though Lewis recorded his fair share of duds during his country period, the twenty tracks on KILLER COUNTRY can hold their own against Lewis' celebrated rock and roll records and are essential Jerry Lee Lewis.

|Another Place Another Time/She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye CD (2002)
Sings the Country Music Hall of Fame Hits, Vols. 1-2 album for sale Raven's 2002 two-fer CD reissue of Jerry Lee Lewis' 1968 album Another Place Another Time and 1970's She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye contains the added bonus of six tracks -- over half the album -- from 1969's She Still Comes Around (To Love What's Left of Me). By doing this, the disc transcends typical two-fer status (which, frankly, would have been enough, since these two albums are so tremendous, their first CD release is something to celebrate) and becomes the best single-disc collection of Jerry Lee's country material. There have been other discs that tackle the same recordings for Smash (all unfortunately out of print as of this writing), but their scope was a little broader, including many of his '70s hits for Mercury as well as Smash sides unheard here. On the surface, this may seem to be a drawback -- more is usually better, after all -- but the narrow focus of this two-fer highlights his peak as pure country singer, when he found his voice and ran with it. He made great music after She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye, to be sure, and had plenty of hits, but these three albums are classics, bristling with excitement and infused with hardcore honky tonk pathos. It's not just that Jerry Lee sounds great on these songs -- he rarely sounded bad, after all -- but it's that the songs are perfectly suited for him, and the performances are as bold and robust as he is. Also, all the key country hits -- "What's Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made a Loser Out of Me)," "Another Place Another Time," "She Still Comes Around (To Love What's Left of Me)," "Once More With Feeling," "She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye" -- are here, and the depth of quality of this material is richer than on some hit collections. These are not just three of the best Jerry Lee albums, they're three of the best and hardest country music ever waxed, and even if one of the records isn't here in its entirety (the best cuts are, though), this is the best way to currently hear them. It's an absolutely essential collection. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

|Killer Rocks On/Boogie Woogie Country Man CD (2004)
Sings the Country Music Hall of Fame Hits, Vols. 1-2 CD music 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

|Another Place Another Time/She Still Comes Around CD (2005) |
Sings the Country Music Hall of Fame Hits, Vols. 1-2 buy CD music BGO's 2004 release Another Place Another Time/She Still Comes Around (To Love What's Left of Me) compiles Jerry Lee Lewis' first two country albums as a single-disc two-fer. Both albums are excellent hard country LPs, and this is a terrific way to pick them up, but consumers might want to seek out Raven's similar two-fer of Another Place Another Time/She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye, which contains the entirety of those two LPs, plus six of the 11 songs from She Still Comes Around. For fans who can only afford one two-fer of the Killer's best country albums, that's the way to go, but for collectors who want the albums in their entirety and do not want to invest in Bear Family's superb series of Jerry Lee's complete recordings, this is a good choice. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Two classic Jerry Lee albums from the late 60s - country ballads and rockers from these original Mercury/Smash albums. Remastered with slipcase plus additional notes. BGO. 2004.
