Jerry Lee Lewis: Live At The Star-Club Hamburg (LP, 180g Vinyl)

180-gram vinyl-lp. Gatefold sleeve.
  • In poll after poll, this LP is hailed as one of the greatest records of all time.
  • Quite possibly the greatest live recording ever.
  • And now this 1964 classic makes a welcome reappearance on vinyl.
  • 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.
  • His reading of Your Cheating Heart is still definitive, and Whole Lotta Shakin' is quite possibly the greatest-ever version.
Fortyfive years later, we can re-live that night on the Reeperbahn. For those who bought the original LP, Bear Family's remastering will enable you to listen to it anew, for those who missed it, there's no excuse now.

As a bonus, Bear Family has included one song, Down The Line, missing from the original LP. And: when you open the gate-fold cover, there's a large street map (60 x 60cm / 24 x 24) of Hamburg's St. Pauli quarter showing the Reeperbahn and Star-Club. This exclusive full-color graphic was designed by Ulf Harten, a well-known artist and friend of Bear Family.

Jerry Lee Lewis - Obituary 

The Pumping Piano Man will rock the house no more.

Jerry Lee Lewis, whose youthful wildhair ways defined rock and roll as indelibly as his leering, lascivious vocals and thundering skills on the 88s, died October 28, 2022 at the age of 87. Against all odds, he was one of the last legends standing from the days when Sam Phillips built an astonishing talent roster for his Sun Records. When Lewis appeared on his doorstep in 1956, determined to show the folks in charge precisely what he could do to a defenseless piano, the Memphis label had already bid adieu to Elvis and was riding high thanks to Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, and a posse of other raucous rockabillies. 

Still, Jerry Lee would captivate Sam—and the world--like no other, despite suffering monumental damage from a 1958 scandal involving his precocious child bride (who also happened to be his cousin) that would have ended any other performer’s career permanently. Jerry Lee, like Old Man River, just kept on rolling along, regenerating his popularity first with the rock and roll crowd and then veering into the country field with tremendous success. Long after he achieved senior citizen status (who would have ever foreseen that happening to the hard-living Lewis?), the Killer insisted on rocking as hard as his health would allow.

Born September 29, 1935 in Ferriday, Louisiana, Lewis grew up with a pair of piano-playing cousins, Mickey Gilley (who followed in Jerry Lee’s rocking footsteps) and future evangelist Jimmy Swaggart. Lewis cited country greats Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams as primary influences, along with a little bit of Al Jolson and some of the sweaty blues that he snuck into hear at Haney’s Big House, Ferriday’s top black juke joint. He mostly refused to admit to any pianists as role models, although his 88s-playing cousin Carl McVoy impressed him. So did sightless piano wizard Paul Whitehead when the two played together in Natchez circa 1952. A brief stint at a Texas bible college ended when Jerry Lee transformed My God Is Real into a heathenous boogie, but gospel music always remained close to his heart. 

Lewis honed his act in clubs from Natchez to Nashville prior to the auspicious trip to Memphis that landed Lewis his audition with Sun producer Jack Clement. Jack was impressed, and before long he rolled tape when Jerry Lee launched into his hot-rodded treatment of Ray Price’s recent country hit Crazy Arms. Sun pressed it up, and Lewis was on the musical map. Phillips knew he’d found someone truly special, and let tape roll whenever Jerry Lee found his way to 706 Union Avenue to pump Phillips’ studio piano. One of the many disparate songs Lewis waxed for Sun was the rip-roaring Whole Lot Of Shakin’ Going On, already waxed elsewhere by fellow piano man Roy Hall and mountainous blues belter Big Maybelle. Jerry Lee tightened up his rafter-rattling version during a long night at the Twin Gables in Blytheville, Arkansas. Then he cut it for Sun with guitarist Roland Janes, drummer J.M. Van Eaton, and Jerry Lee’s cousin, J.W. Brown, on electric bass.  

Issued as his encore single, Whole Lot Of Shakin’ was an across-the-board juggernaut during the summer of 1957. Lewis was suddenly starring on network television, headlining star-studded package shows, and raising hell wherever he went, playing pianos with his feet, kicking their benches, standing atop them and tearing them apart with the sheer ferocity of his performances. Things escalated to a fever pitch with his next Sun single, the flammable Otis Blackwell-penned smash Great Balls Of Fire. Lewis went right back to Blackwell for Breathless, another major hit. High School Confidential, the title song to the movie of the same name (in which Lewis memorably appeared on a flatbed truck under the opening credits), was on its way to similar blockbuster status when news hit of his betrothal to his 13-year-old cousin Myra Gail, bassist Brown’s daughter. Jerry Lee was instantly toxic, his career in tatters. 

Slowly but surely, he came back. Sam never gave up on him, continuing to issue a stream of Lewis platters until Jerry exited the fading label in 1963 to sign with Mercury’s Smash subsidiary. At first, Jerry Lee continued relentlessly rocking, but in ’68 he switched to country music and proved every bit as sensational as he was a decade earlier in the rock arena, posting an avalanche of hits and completing his comeback. Lewis would alternate between rock and country in decades to come, ferociously stoking his own outsized legend with seven wives, a 1989 movie based rather loosely on his life, and enough insane antics both offstage and on to fill the pages of several highly entertaining biographies. Bear Family has compiled a series of lavish boxed sets over the years covering much of the Killer’s amazing career.

No pianist ever rocked a boogie-woogie with more single-minded panache than the Killer. He was truly one of a kind.       --Bill Dahl

Essential

There are other versions of this concert to be had on the market, but Bear Family once again delivers the definitive version. For one, the LP format is perfect for rock 'n' roll, and moreover the mastering and presentation of the album is magnificent. The fold out map is a great idea ... not necessary in any way, but a VERY fun addition to a great album. And how much fun would life be, if we were always given solely the bare necessities?
Jerry Lee seemingly wants to just KILL that piano, and one can't help but have a bit of pity for the three Nashville Teens that are in a metaphorical way thrown to the lions ... they face a superhuman task, just trying to keep up with Jerry Lee!
Thanks, Bear Family, for all you've done through the years ... you continue to amaze!

Press and Reviews
Press - Jerry Lee Lewis - Live at the Star Club Hamburg - AUDIOPHILE VINYL May 2010
Press - AUDIOPHILE VINYL May 2010 Live At The Star Club Hamburg Bear Family The first of the rock’n’roll wild men, Jerry Lee scared the life out of every parent during the late fifties with his ferocious on-stage antics, almost killing the piano he played during each performance.This was a man who lived for the moment and proudly displayed his sexuality to the world while thrilling the youngsters who gazed, mouths agape, at this fiery ball of energy, to steal an image from his great hit, ‘Great Balls Of Fire’. His life was packed with incident and scandal. He was thrown out of bible college, thrown into jail, lionised for marrying his thirteen year old cousin, admitted to hospital for alcohol and drug abuse and... well, the films and books reveal all. 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,

Press - JERRY LEE LEWIS Live At The Star Club Hamburg Bear Family LP www.bear-family.de Sometimes touted as one of the greatest live rock 'n' roll albums euer, there's no denying that The Killer is truly an the rampage during this show at The Star Club in 1964. Backed by The Nashville Teens, Lewis marauds through a set that includes several of his own classics such as 'Great Balls Of Fire' and 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On', as well as covers of Little Richard, Elvis and Ray Charles songs among others. Although he would neuer fully recover the same lofty status he once enjoyed in the popularity stakes following the furore he caused by marrying his teenaged cousin a few years earlier, it's evident that Lewis is clearly a man back at the top of his game performance wise in this show. This vinyl-only reissue will also appeal to collectors, coming as it does replete with a pop-up, gatefold cover depicting a map of Hamburg's legendary Reeperbahn district, as well as the hell-blazing bonus kack 'Down The Line'.
