Best of Jerry Lee Lewis is an album by Jerry Lee Lewis released on Smash Records in 1970. It features all seven consecutive top-ten country hits Lewis scored between 1968 and 1970, including the number one "To Make Love Sweeter for You". "Slippin' Around" had been previously unavailable. Jim Worbois of AllMusic writes that "these tracks are every bit as exciting, in their own way, as the tracks he cut for Sun. This stuff is killer." [2]
