5.0 out of 5 stars Slayed By The Killer, 21 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Live at the Star Club, Hamburg (Audio CD)
This live recording from 1964 must surely rank as one of the greatest rock and roll concerts of all time. By 1964 Lewis had long fallen from grace with the establishment resulting from the moral outrage expressed by the British media in [I think] 1958 when his tour of the UK was eventually cancelled when the news about his teenage bride broke.An idea of the sheer raw excitement that the British public missed of him in concert is captured here. It is a brilliant reminder of why early rock was so exciting and of why those who were teenagers at the time sided more with him the more he was vilified.Others of later generations will doubtless be able to think of more recent examples of the anti-hero.
But enough of the sociology thesis.This is simply one of the most exciting rock concerts that was ever recorded.Does anyone have a video of it anywhere ?
