    Jerry Lee’s “To Make Love Sweeter For You” was Jerry’s first number one on Billboard since “Great Balls of Fire reached #1 in early 1958. JLL seemed to get move love from Cashbox and Record World as seven more singles reached #1 on Cashbox and/or Record World than did on Billboard, including “What Made Milwaukee Famous” (two singles before) which reached #1 on both charts. I always thought JLL was better at ballads than rockers and for a few years he did a pretty good job of proving me right.
