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.

The Stranger / Billy Joel

It wasn’t until “The Stranger” that Billy Joel finally hit the Top 10 on both the Billboard album and singles charts. That’s when people started to pay attention. “Just the Way You Are” was the song that rocketed to No. 3, propelled “The Stranger” to No. 2 and made Joel a household name.
