I definitely recommend to any true diverse music lover!

The performance on the 60s Granada program from Great Britain reminds me of the Live at The Star Club performance in Germany; it has to be seen to be believed.

Great overview of thirty years of Jerry Lee Lewis' career. Of all the ten rock 'n' roll pioneers, only Chuck Berry and Lewis kept the fire going. This DVD is divided into three decades. We get Jerry on the Steve Allen Show tearing up "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," but the follow up of "Great Balls of Fire" on the Steve Allen Show isn't here. The next two cuts, "You Win Again" and "Great Balls of Fire" are not live, but lip-synched on the great Dewey Phillips Pop Show TV Show. Any glimpse of Dewey Phillips is worth the trip. Before Imus, before Wolfman Jack, there was Dewey Phillips playing black artists in the early fifties in the segregated deep south.

The final cut from the 1950's is from Dick Clark's first Saturday night Bandstand Show. Jerry Lee cuts through "Breathless." The teenyboppers in the audience are more focused in trying to clap in time. It's quite a struggle for them, poor dears.

The 1960's segment is live and primitive. Jerry Lee back in England a few years after he was booted out. He is more gutsy and gritty and frenetic on this Granada Concert Special than at any other time in his career. The crowd is really into it, to the point of grabbing Jerry Lee and holding on while Jerry Lee Lewis is wailing and tearing up the piano. Some music critics believe that Jerry Lee Lewis' frantic, inciting performances in England and Germany in the early 1960's were the genesis of Punk Music. Let's face it, no one was performing with equal fervor at the time. Elvis had been neutralized, Chuck Berry was doing time, and Little Richard couldn't decide if he was gay or straight, or whether he should continue the evil path of the Devil's music or become a minister. Eventually, Little Richard became a panelist on Hollywood Squares.

Ok this is a great DVD with some great performances and a interview from Jerry Lee in 1993 at Sun records.Plenty of highlights best for me is Lewis boogie in the section with Jerry Lee's cousin Mickey Gilley who was a country superstar at the time.It is interesting to see the different years including the first Steve Allen performance of Whole lotta shakin'.The quality is as good as you can get from I guess the sources they used with some Jerry Lee fan's on forums saying they could have used the master of the 1964 Granada show.If you want to see a discussion on that there is one on the new Jerry Lee Lewis forum.I can't put a link here but if you go to Wikipedia Jerry Lee Lewis page there is a link there.You can see some screenshots of this DVD taken from my pc on that forum.I would have given this 5 out of 5 but although it is interesting to see the Duey Phillips show it is lip synched (one of the few times JLL has done that) so I would have preferred to see another late sixties performance instead.I would recommend this DVD as it is great to see one of the greatest performers in action especially if you have not been able to see his first performance on tv or just like to see the Killer at work!

This is the DVD that diehard Jerry Lee Lewis fans have been waiting many years for! Lewis will go down in history as one of the most flamboyant live performers in American music and the classic performances here prove that fact strongly. After all these years there are few Lewis DVD's to choose from and very little live footage available of the Killer in his prime. This DVD solves that problem with three different Television appearances from the 50's, a great 1964 appearance on British television, and two appearances from the 70's during Jerry Lee's period as a country music star.

Jerry Lee's historic television debut on the Steve Allen show in 1957 has to rank among the most wild and crazy performances in American television as he tears into "Whole lotta shakin goin on" like a madman! The Killer storms through the song with manic intensity, kicking back the piano bench and shouting the lyrics into the microphone as he pounds the piano keys with fury. This performance makes other 50's rockers like Elvis and Chuck Berry look tame in comparison. You can only imagine the horrified reaction of parents as they watched this performance in their living rooms in 1957!

Jerry Lee's performance of "Breathless" on the Dick Clark show is another example of Lewis at his flamboyant best, but I agree the only real disappointment in the DVD is the segment from the Dewey Phillips show where "You win Again" and "Great Balls of Fire" are the original Sun recordings overdubbed and not Jerry Lee singing live.

Next we have a priceless, sensational British television performance from 1964 that is even more outrageous than the TV appearances from the 50's. This is possibly the greatest footage we will ever see of a young Jerry Lee Lewis tearing it up in his absolute prime.
