Biography

Born September 29, 1935, in Ferriday, Louisiana, Jerry Lee had only one or two piano lessons, the teacher whacking him for wanting to play in his own style right from the start. Instead, Jerry taught himself from the radio and juke box, soaking up the styles of Hank Williams, Jimmy Rodgers, Al Jolson and other artists in a glorious era of American popular music. Another major influence came ... Read more in Amazon's Jerry Lee Lewis Store

I've been a Jerry Lee fan since the 60s, but always a bit disappointed with his recorded material - live albums have never had particularly good audio quality and the studio recordings have lacked the energy of a live performance. There haven't been any albums for a long time.

This album is a great compromise. It's a CD to be played loud, and let the smile spread over your face. It's got fantastic vitality and it just sounds like everyone's having a ball, helped by the ad libs left on the recording. This is not one of those "duet" albums where the artists have never even met and are probably recording on different sides of the Atlantic - clearly everyone was together in the studio and thoroughly enjoying themselves.

The recording quality is good and there is an excellent sound balance.

On an album like this there will be one or two weaker tracks - Heaven knows what possessed Don Henley and Jerry Lee to perform the awful "What makes the Irish Heart Beat" and it was a missed opportunity for Rod Stewart to be in crooning mode when he could have belted out a rocker - but virtually everything else is pure enjoyment.

Usually I buy an album, play it a lot for a couple of weeks anfd then hardly play it again. This has been in my car for a couple of months now and I just never tire of it. Buy it, and I defy you to avoid grinning every time you listen.

Lots of people were afraid that Jerry Lee Lewis' new record, "Last Man Standing," would be an over-the-hill disappointment -- all too typical of expensively produced geriatric "duet" CDs. Instead, this is the opposite. It is a triumphant piece of work. The duets are magnificent (with Lewis leading all the way), some featuring heart-rending harmonies -- such as "What Made Milwaukee Famous" with Rod Stewart and "Wedding Gown" with Mick Jagger. But the true highlights are the tried-and-true hard rockers, such as "Pink Cadillac" with Bruce Springsteen. Virtually every cut is a masterpiece. Whether one is a Lewis fan or not, this is virtuoso stuff -- and stuff of real historical importance. Lewis has not sounded this great since the '50s.

This is a fantastic album. 21 tracks and 22 guest stars including three Rolling Stones, one ex-Beatle, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, B. B. King, Buddy Guy, Rod Stewart, Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, George Jones, Little Richard, etc., etc.

But Jerry Lee outshines them all. He can still kick ass on piano and vocally. Hear him tear-up Honky Tonk Woman, Pink Cadillac and Travelin' Band at breakneck speed, and sing beautiful ballads like A Couple More Years, Old Glory, What's Made Milwaukee Famous (with Rod Stewart), What Makes The Irish Heart Beat, and a great duet with country super-star George Jones - Don't Be Ashamed of Your Age.

This album is brilliant! It should be #1 for the rest of the year!

The Last Man Standing

Album Review: August 25th 2006

Last man standing is a more than appropriate title, for more than one reason; As the album publicity machine boasts, Jerry Lee Lewis is indeed the last man standing from the group of legends who graced the famous Sun Studios in Memphis, when Sam Phillips was going through talent like Elvis was going though girlfriends. The title of the album could also have been a challenge, set out to the loyal fans of The Killer, as if to ask which of them would still be standing when this album was finally released. Well the fans are still standing, and now the time is here to take a first look at the highly anticipated album, from Jerry Lee Lewis, his first since Young Blood in 1995.

Produced by Jimmy Rip and Steve Bingg, without a question this is an album produced by fans, for the fans. That just doesn't go for the producers; it goes for each and every one of the artists gracing the 21 tracks. Rip has been quoted as saying that the phone calls he made to the guest artists were some of the easiest he ever had to make. People were simply queuing up to get in on the action.

Whilst Jimmy Rip's persuasive powers might have been in 5th gear for this production, his ability to actually get the album onto disc, and in production, has barely stuttered into 1st gear. There have been more reasons given for the delay of this album, than there are tracks, and at 21 that's quite a feat. Firstly Jerry was in the midst of an unnameable split with his 6th wife, so financial reasons were regularly sited as the show stopper for the release. Once that was done and dusted we were told that the release would tie in with Jerry's lifetime achievement Grammy award, or perhaps his 70th birthday.

Format: Audio CD
Over the last few years there has been a series of albums from music legends as they turn 70. For example, there has been Tom Jones' `Praise and Blame', Kris Kristofferson's `This Old Road' and Johnny Cash's superlative `American recordings'. In these the various artists have taken a look back at a long life, sung about their regrets and asked forgiveness for sins.

If any artist has sins to forgive, or a right to any regrets, it is Jerry Lee Lewis. The originator of the rock'n'roll lifestyle (and an originator of rock'n'roll!) he drank hard, played hard and fought hard. But now he has reached 70 one might expect him to have matured and be turning out music as reflective as his contemporaries.

Not a bit of it! From the opening bars it is clear that the Killer regrets nothing, except perhaps that he didn't do more of it. He still has the zest, vim and vigour that made him the most powerful rocker of his generation. He grabs each song by the scruff and makes it his own, turning out a real rockin' powerhouse of a record. The nearest he gets to reflective is the last track, a moody rendition of Kris Kristofferson's 'Pilgrim', which could almost have been written about Lewis. But with the final line, 'From the rocking of the cradle, to the rolling of the hearse, the going up was worth the coming down' Lewis reaffirms that every step was worth it for all the fun he had, and he would do it all over again. It's a powerful closing line for the album in its delivery, and worth the price of admission by itself.

When I saw that this is an album of duets I felt a bit uneasy, such efforts are usually rubbish. But this time it works. The main reason for this is that Lewis cuts his guests no slack. They either fit in and keep up with him, or they fade out of sight.
