Jerry Lee left Sun in 1963, but, like Elvis, returned often. By the mid-1970s, the studio was run by Sam Phillips' son, Knox, who produced one of the era's biggest hits, the Amazing Rhythm Aces' ":Third Rate Romance.": Like his father, Knox intuitively understood how to produce Jerry Lee Lewis, allowing him free rein to plunder his subconscious for half-forgotten songs and reimagine them as Jerry Lee Lewis songs, just as he d done with ":Whole Lotta Shakin;": twenty years earlier.

Reviews:

Over the course of several nights, Knox recorded Jerry Lee Lewis as he crossed the breadth of American music from Stephen Foster to Jim Croce's still-current hit ":Bad, Bad Leroy Brown.": Alongside a nineteenth century gospel standard, ":Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior,": Jerry drawled his way imperiously through pop classics like ":Harbor Lights,": and timeless country hits like ":Room Full of Roses.": Although he wrote none of the songs, Jerry Lee imprints himself forcefully upon them, perhaps never more so than on the bitterly regretful ":That Kind of Fool.":
