5.0 out of 5 stars The most energetic live album ever June 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Whenever I listen to this, I can feel my heart pumping at a hundred beats a second. No other live album captures the energy and fun of this one. Jerry Lee Lewis was at a low point in his career. After marrying his thirteen year old cousin, he was in exile in the States and was only on the verge on being forgiven by Europe. That didn't however alter his perception that he was the king of rock 'n' roll, which in many ways he was. It certainly didn't stop him from being a wildman on stage, and as crazy as his 50's performances where, he is on top of his game on this recording. He plays his songs with a passion and love for them, and puts more heart and soul into the covers than the original artists probably ever dreamed of. A little bit of ego will carry you a long way, and Jerry's ego is massive on this one, resulting in the most energetic live album there is. "Kick Out the Jams" and "At Folsum Prison" are great, but are incredibly tame compared to this. "At the Apollo 1962" is a good, but not great album. It is considored the greatest live album mainly because it is the most influential. Despite the fact it proved people would buy a live album, it was far from the best. This, folks, it the best. Elvis who? Jerry Lee Lewis never sold his soul to Vegas, and is the true king of rock 'n' roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars The triumphal return May 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
In the early 1960s on to the 1970s, Jerry Lee Lewis was probably doing the best rock and roll ever done by anyone. It is unfortunate that this was not what people were listening to at the time, but we do have this CD.
This was done in a triumphant tour where JLL returned to Europe starting out with a tour of Britain that was outstanding.I've seen a film of what was no doubt the greatest single rock and roll performance of all history on that tour, one of the British teen rock shows I was recently informed was a special for Granada Television with Little Richard opening and Jerry Lee Lewis closing. It drove the studio audience into a near riot, drove me into near riot seeing it, unfortunately before I owned a vcr!
But we have this performance. Yes Jerry is cocky and Egoistic. The last time he hit Europe he was driven out of England by booing crowds because of his marriage, and when he returned to the USA his entire career fell into a shambles and he was denounced as a moral degenerate, backward "hillbilly" and thrown on the ash heep of history. Even though Lewis's music got better and better, there would be no more number one hits (he had several that went number one in R & B, Pop, and County at the same time!!!)until he went solid country in the middle 1970s. Now he has already conquered England with terrific smashing well reviewed shows and crowds that loved him. Now it is his time to celelbrate.
Here he is back, and even though he is just playing with a German pickup band, he is really burning the music out. He is in his element with a hot crowd of people who are drinking, seducing, and partying like there is no tommorrow (and probably no tommorrow but a hangover), and he is rising to the occaision.

This performance is a MUST for anyone curious about the POWER of Jerry Lee Lewis in his prime!!! Turn this one up REAL LOUD...sit in front of the speaker, and bear witness to "The Greatest Live Album" ever recorded!

5.0 out of 5 stars Jerry! Jerry! Jerry! September 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Is this the greatest live album of all time? It very well may be. At the very least, it's the greatest live album by any of the "founding fathers" of rock and roll. Jerry Lee Lewis, with the capable backing of "one hit wonders" the Nashville Teens, blazes his way through an awesome set. Jerry Lee has the crowd in the palm of his hand, and don't think he doesn't know it. This is not just a live album, it's an epic document of a man that many considered to be a has-been proving that he still could rock harder than anybody.

5.0 out of 5 stars HARDER THAN A ROCK March 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Jerry Lee Lewis is the Frank Sinatra of Rock and Roll. He's never written a song that matters but his interpretation and feel for music is unquestionably great. His place in American music history is equal to Howlin' Wolf in the sense that he is both mysterious and predictable, simple yet complicated. This live record is demonstrative of everything Jerry Lee Lewis was and is. It is also demonstrative of why rock and roll should never die. Because passion in art is everything. And if there's anything this artist possesses, it's true god given passion for his calling. How can one man travel this road for so long? Playing honky tonks and stadiums. Being poor then rich then poor then God knows what. The peaks and valleys of a career that's been called dead then alive more times Elvis. It has never been what Jerry Lee Lewis plays on the piano that matters, but how he plays it. The spirit and fire that emanantes from his very being is the very essence of what has given rock music the longivity it feebly holds onto. What is so incredible is that between Jerry Lee Lewis and Iggy Pop, not much else exists in the way of true living American rock and rollers. Listening to this only-could have-happened-at-this-one-time record almost explains why. Almost.
