Format: Audio CD
This is Jerry Lee Lewis at his very best - wild, energetic, playing up to an enthusiastic audience. Supported by British combo the Nashville Teens he storms through his hits, some fabulous boogie piano on several tracks, a nod to country on Your Cheating Heart, sheer power on the performance of Whole Lotta Shakin'. 29 years old and at the height of his powers, if past the peak of his fame, he rewards his fans with more than you can reasonably expect from any performer, a no frills roller coaster ride through some of the best rock and roll songs of the era. The sound quality of 60s recodings means the band are not always clearly audible but Jerry Lee is clear throughout. A cracker!

This is the most exciting live record ever recorded if you don't have this forget listening to anything else for excitment and true live perfomance,you need it. Lewis performance has never been matched by any other performer.

Format: Audio CD
Jerry Lee live in concert at his peak. This CD is full of edgy piano driven rock n' roll in Jerry Lee's unique style. Full of energy, excitement and atmosphere. Great sound production. Great concert. Great fun. If you like Jerry lee or rock n' roll, I cannot see how you could fail to enjoy this. Should be played loud. Recommended.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Dangerous Dave TOP 500 REVIEWER on 25 Aug. 2011
Format: Audio CD
Ten reasons why you should buy this one:

1. Jerry was down but was still determined and even desperate to prove that he was the greatest. He was down because his career had not revived significantly after the disastrous 1958 tour of the UK and the "child bride" fiasco. There was optimism that it would improve with his move to Smash, a subsidiary of Mercury, in 1963, but both his first single and album had hardly registered in the charts. But if he couldn't do it on record he was still going out there live and kill them.
2. And in Jerry's eyes, was anyone even interested in rock'n'roll anymore? Music that he didn't know anything about let alone like, was hitting the charts. Even Elvis was now focussed on films. Little Richard had never come back after his dramatic turn to religion in 1960. Chuck hadn't got back to the charts after that jail charge. Had the days of rock'n'roll gone forever? Was Jerry supporting all of rock'n'roll in those ten twinkling fingers?
3. This is Jerry's best live album ever. There was a later one on Smash but it didn't match this. After he switched to predominantly country he only gave us snippets of rock'n'roll in his shows and concentrated on the C&W.
4. It's probably the best live rock'n'roll album ever. That's a bit more difficult to prove but not many of the great rock'n'rollers were captured in their pomp. There's later stuff when the likes of Chuck, Little R and Jerry himself were filmed in the UK but it doesn't really compare. And Elvis may have done all those shows from Vegas. But were they really rock'n'roll? Virtually anything you can think of in terms of live rock'n'roll was controlled and tame compared with the air of total anarchy about this performance.

Format: Audio CD
I read a review of this lp in one of those 1000 best albums of all time books which said it was brilliant. I simply could not beleive it was that good. It was not only as good as they said it was, it was better! I have not been able to play anything else since I got it. This is rock n roll at it's very best. The energy is amazing. I danced round the kitchen listening to it, and at my age it takes alot to make me do that.It is even better than "It's alive" and I never thought I would say that about a live album. Buy it. If you don't love it, you simply don't like rock n roll.

- Joe Bonomo in 'Jerry Lee Lewis. Lost and Found.' (See my review)

'...one of the most electrifying rock & roll shows ever recorded.' Siggy Loch. Producer.

'The way I think about it is you've got a wolf that's caught in a trap, and Jerry Lee at the Star-Club is the sound of a wolf biting its own leg off.' Dave Alvin

And six other Amazon reviewers are spot on, excepting that this couldn't possibly have been done in the studio. Lewis' record sales by 1964 were deep in recession even if he was raising a storm in clubs and theatres across the Western world. The only time that the spirit and the demons were unlocked was in front of audiences. Siggy Loch - a jazz man at Philips - figured this out and set up this live recording at the Star-Club in Hamburg.

It was the perfect moment - Jerry Lee had been rampaging around the UK (19 shows in 20 days) raising a storm. He had made up with his backing band, the Nashville Teens, after a spat in Berlin. It was the perfect place. The Star-Club down in the Hamburg Reeperbahn was packing in three shows a night. The Beatles had long since gone but the German kids were still raving for rock'n'roll. Just look at the photo in the booklet: bee-hived fraulein packed up to the stage behind a line of beer bottles, Jerry Lee's eyes lasering the space above them.
And another thing - the club had basic recording facilities and had already learnt how to use them. When it came to re-mastering 30 years later it only took the engineer three hours to master it, the originals were that good. The Nashville Teens (on this occasion minus singers and piano-player) were veterans on the Reeperbahn and Lewis songs were standard fare.
All they had to do was keep up with the Killer.
