The third installment of Bear Family’s exhaustive reissue of Jerry Lee Lewis’ complete recordings, Mercury Smashes…and Rockin’ Sessions, covers the era that many listeners, even some fans, dismiss — his late-’60s and ’70s recordings for Mercury. Conventional wisdom claims that the Killer was pretty much spent as a creative force during this time, since he had already made his near-triumphant comeback as a hard country singer on Mercury in the mid-’60s, and that he coasted on formula, except for the concentrated burst of the Roots album.Read More

Any casual listener looking over this 132-track five-CD set would probably conclude that it was far more Bill Haley than they need bite off in one gulp — and they’d be right, as casual listeners. For the serious rock & roll enthusiast, as well as the hardcore Bill Haley fan, however, there’s a wealth of worthwhile material to be found here, some of which will amaze even those fans: a dozen great songs and 55 or so more that are good, and another 20 that are fascinatingRead More

Often it seems that every note Elvis Presley ever recorded has been repackaged and reissued in every conceivable combination, but there has never been a set comparable to 2010’s The Complete Elvis Presley Masters, a lavish limited 30-CD set that rounds up all 711 completed takes from Presley, including 100 relative rarities.Read More

An amazing piece of work — a massive eight-CD boxed set that contains every one of Fats Domino’s 1949-1962 Imperial waxings. That’s a tremendous load of one artist, but the legacy of Domino and his partner Dave Bartholomew is so consistently innovative and infectious that it never grows tiresome for a second.Read More

To be fair, this six-CD set is really for completists only, since the price tag is likely to put off anyone else. But if you’ve been hooked on the beautiful guitar work of Hank Marvin and the surprisingly muscularity of the band, delving deeper is a very good idea. Not only do you get all the big hits — like “Apache,” “F.B.I.,” and “The Rise and Fall of Flingel Bunt” (or even the wonderfully named “I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Arthur”) — you get literally everything.Read More

Bob Dylan and the Band both needed the celebrated reunion tour of 1974, since Dylan’s fortunes had been floundering since Self Portrait and the Band stumbled with 1971’s Cahoots. The tour, with its attendant publicity, definitely returned both artists to center stage, and it definitely succeeded, breaking box office records and earning great reviews.Read More

2012 two CD collection. Del Shannon made an instant impact when his debut release, the startlingly innovative and much-loved ‘Runaway’, went to the top of the charts on both sides of the Atlantic.
