Duets: The 1978 Orion overdubbed LP

This is actually the "Duets" LP, released in December 1978, minus 2 tracks, "Am I To Be The One" & "Sail Away." It didn't chart on Billboard.

This LP certainly generated controversy, as it contains Orion, aka Jimmy Ellis, who overdubbed vocals on all these original early '60s cuts Jerry did for Sun sometime in 1978.

He's the guy who Sun Records owner Shelby Singleton had don a mask about a year after Elvis died, causing some people to think he was actually Elvis. His voice also sounded remarkably like Elvis.

Two singles from this LP, with Orion's overdubbed 1978 vocals, actually charted on the country charts. "Save The Last Dance For Me" went top 30 at #26 C&W, while "Cold, Cold Heart" made #84 C&W. By the way, both of these songs were released as 1961 A-sides by Jerry Lee, yet they didn't chart at that time.

Later, in December 1979, another album overdubbed by Orion came out on Sun entitled "Trio Plus." The trio was Jerry Lee, Carl Perkins, & Charlie Rich.

The original vocals & backing tracks were left intact, the only new (1979) sounds were Orion's vocals. Again, it didn't chart. "Be Bop A Lula," "Good Rockin' Tonight," & "Money" were originally on this album.

This album is basically for fans of Orion, because you should be able to find all the tracks here on iTunes in their original version minus Orion's vocals.

Is there an early rock & roller who has a crazier reputation than the Killer, Jerry Lee Lewis? His exploits as a piano-thumping, egocentric wild man with an unquenchable thirst for living have become the fodder for numerous biographies, film documentaries, and a full-length Hollywood movie. Certainly few other artists came to the party with more ego and talent than he and lived to tell the tale. And certainly even fewer could successfully channel that energy into their music and prosper doing it...
