I have listend to all 18 discs and I have to say - this is the greatest release of the killer ever! However, I came to the conclusion that I like Jerry's 50's sun recordings much more than the ones he did in the early 60's. During the early 60's they often used additional instrumentation like saxophones, organs, background vocals etc. and the early 50's sun sound is more "pure".

I've always thought the opposite. The 60s recordings were far more diverse than the 50s both in instrumentation and material, and I also believe Jerry's singing had improved greatly by around 1961 (I regard 1961-1971 as Jerry's "golden decade").

There's no doubting though that this is an incredible set, and unless lots of Smash / Mercury alternate takes surface it's impossible to imagine anything else matching up to it.
