Notes

In poll after poll, this LP is hailed as one of the greatest records of all time and quite possibly the greatest live recording ever. Jerry Lee was never on better form, and his backing group, the Nashville Teens, are still trying to catch up with him. Jerry Lee went from one classic to another. Gatefold sleeve includes a large street map (24” x 24”) of Hamburg’s St. Pauli quarter showing the Reeperbahn and Star-Club.

Originally released in 1964, this vinyl LP is a welcome reissue of a classic live album. Backed by the Nashville Teens, Lewis rips through his own hits and gives superb renditions of others, too. From his own Great Balls of Fire and Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On to covers of Hound Dog, Long Tall Sally and Your Cheating Heart, this is a tour de force performance. In fact, Lewis tears through the album with pure, undiluted energy. An explosive performance, it is a wonder that Bear Family has been able to confine the great man within an acceptable audiophile pressing. They’ve done more than that, however. For such an early live recording, this is a superb pressing that somehow manages to retain the sound dynamics, maintain the sound quality and allow Lewis to unleash his considerable talents.

As a bonus, the inside of the gatefold cover includes a fold-out street map of Hamburg’s St. Pauli quarter showing the Reeperbahn and Star-Club. You also get the bonus live track, Down The Line.
