Then after several years memories faded and the comeback was on with the album “The Return of Rock.” Released on Smash records in 1965, a copy can get you $100.00 today. It met with good success but nothing like the fame he gained when his Country music career brought him back to the top of the charts. Find the value for every record by Jerry Lee Lewis and those by over 55,000 other recording artists with the Mighty John Record Appraisal Guide on CD, listing the values for over a million records.
