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.

Jerry Lee Lewis is the favorite singer of my mom and she was talking about the possibility to listen to some of his songs again, but she lost the discs. I will tell her about this post, she will be so happy, thanks!
