Jerry Lee Lewis Live At The Star Club, Hamburg- Lost & Found

Jerry Lee Lewis’ Live At The Starclub, Hamburg, 1963 is probably the greatest live rock’n’roll album ever made. It wasn’t released in the U.S. until the early ninties when Rhino re-issued it on CD (I think it’s now out of print), but UK re-issues are fairly easy to find. It’s one speed driven, frenzied, rock’n’roll moment, captured on wax forever. Now, Joe Bonomo, who wrote the wonderful Fleshtones bio Sweat (Continuum Books, 2007) has just published Jerry Lee Lewis– Lost and Found (Continuum Books, 2009), an entire book telling the story of that great LP. It’s quite a story and a must for the Jerry Lee Lewis fan, I assume his next book will be the story of Johnny & the Hurricanes Live At The Star Club.


James Brown’s incredible megalomaniac post-arrest TV appearance– “I smell good….”

He’s gotta be drunk….

Weddings are great to get drunk at….

Russians get mean when they are drunk, which is often, this guy picks (and loses) a fight with a tree.

I love this one from bonehead Hank Jr., skip ahead to 1:18 for the fun….

The Possum’s been known to take a nip now and then…

The Killer looks like he took piano lessons from Chico Marx on this one…a bit long but still entertaining.

Suggested soundtrack, 78’s from guys named Jimmy:
Jimmy Liggins & his 3-D Music– Drunk (Specialty)
Jimmy Myers & his Happy Highway Gang- Drunk Man Wiggle (Fortune)
