iTunes Review

The line was indeed thin between the raucous sounds that early rockers made on Saturday nights in alcohol- and sweat-soaked clubs and some of the Pentecostal pandemonium that blared behind wooden church pulpits and on small AM stations on Sunday mornings. This collection wonderfully showcases that fact. It starts with Jerry Lee Lewis and Sun label founder Sam Phillips speaking to one another with the conviction and cadences of jackleg preachers. Seeing as Billy Graham was Jerry Lee’s cousin, this might not come as much of a surprise. The Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee songs are ace, but you knew that already. The Prisonaires deliver a soulful variation on the Southern gospel quartet style, while The Evans Family’s sound is more rough-hewn, more country. What’s delightful is hearing everything recorded so crisply, vocals drenched in the honey of reverb. Sonny Burgess and Charlie Rich deliver a rockabilly gospel variant so engrossing one wishes this sound had been recorded more.
