Jerry Lee's Greatest / Jerry Lee Lewis

Don’t be confused by the title. This 1961 release isn’t a best-of. It’s Jerry Lee Lewis’s second and final LP for Sun Records. He was much more prolific on the singles end during his Sun tenure. The best-known cut here is his 1957 smash “Great Balls of Fire,” which had never been on an LP before.

Warriors Don't Cry

Melba Pattillo Beals was one of nine teenagers chosen to integrate Little Rock’s Central High School.
