A few years ago, Jerry Lee Lewis released a new album, LAST MAN STANDING that surprised the music world. Some people were surprised that Jerry Lee still had it, but the biggest surprise is how well received the album was by the general public. That album featured Jerry Lee singing a series of duets with other musicians. MEAN OLD MAN follows a similar format with most of the songs on the album consisting of a duet with Jerry Lee and someone else.

The songs on MEAN OLD MAN consist of a wide variety of genres from class rock & roll, country, and even a little bit of gospel. Some of the artists that sing or play along include Kid Rock, Ringo Starr, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, and Tim McGraw. There are no signature Jerry Lee tunes, but the album does end with a Jerry Lee solo, "Miss the Mississippi & You".

Jerry Lee Lewis was one of the musicians that I heard over and over and over when I was a kid. My dad loved his pounding piano playing and the wild spirit he seemed to bring to his performances. Well, the Wild Child of classic rock has aged, but still has it in him and now he's a Mean Old Man.

There are two versions of this album available. Spend the extra three or four dollars and get the deluxe version because it's well worth it.

We clearly need a corrective here to some of the lousy reviews. I don't like to assume what I don't know, but I'll play a hunch that the disappointed here were thrilled with "Last Man Standing" because it flat-out rocked. These are the people who know Jerry Lee Lewis, the flying madman of the Sun years. But there's a whole different set of folks out there who are more country, and know Jerry Lee as the hitmaker for Mercury and Smash, who could take a great country song, like "She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye," mine it for every last bit of gold and send it straight into the charts. In those days, the 1960's and early '70s, he was leaning hard on the lyrics, on the stories, his masterful delivery shot straight down into the founding American roots of popular song, Stephen Foster forward into the hills, the bayous, the black joints and the white joints. But the music that enveloped these vocals was often full of layered instruments. This is just how it was done, not lean and raw, but refined and sometimes string-laden. You don't have to worry about strings being here, but people are still having a problem. It's not THEIR Jerry Lee. "Last Man Standing" was rocking Jerry Lee, "Mean Old Man" is grown-up Jerry Lee, and Jim Keltner, the great old session drummer has moved into the producer's chair and crafted one of the best albums of Jerry Lee's long, long career. It is roots rock and country in sharp contrast with the loose-limbs but steely sheen of "Last Man Standing," whose label even boasted about the recording technology. The packaging of "Mean Old Man" couldn't be leaner, with no odes to the Killer's glory. It's all cake and no icing. I'm not saying every one of these songs works. I agree with others who have problems with Tim McGraw.Read more ›

Let me get right to the point. On this Deluxe Edition CD, you get great sound quality, that is "rich & deep", because, there are many, many, studio, backing muscians, playing all kinds of instruments. The only exception, is on Jerry Lee's solo, of "Miss the Mississippi and You", which simply has Jerry Lee alone, only with his piano.

The guest artists generally, play a lessor role, than the ones that were on the CD/DVD, "Last Man Standing", from a few years back. Jerry Lee sings lead vocals, and plays piano on all tracks. Some of the guest artists play a greater role than others. Some actually co-sing lead vocals with Jerry Lee. Some are only minor, just singing background vocals, or playing the guitar, drums, etc. However, all the music & sound is fantastic.

You do get some of Jerry Lee's unique, "Boogie Woogie", piano playing. Plus, you get crisp, clear, lead vocals, on all the songs.

All the songs are great, but some of my favorites include:

Rock & Roll: "Dead Flowers",/w Mick Jagger
"Mean Old Man",/w Ronnie Wood.
"Rockin' My Life Away", w/Kid Rock/Slash. (Now, this one contains Jerry Lee's signature, "Boogie Woogie", piano playing.)
"Roll Over Beethoven", w/Ringo Starr/John Mayer/Jon Brion.(This one also contains some great "boogie-woogie", piano playing by Jerry Lee.)

Country: "Middle Age Crazy", w/Tim McGraw/Jon Brion.
"Swinging Doors", w/Merle Haggard.
"Whiskey River", w/Willie Nelson.

Roots Music: "You Are My Sunshine", w/Sheryl Crow/Jon Brion (This is an old Gov.
Jimmie Davis song.)
"Will The Circle Be UnBroken", w/Mavis Staples/Robbie Robertson/Nis
Lofgen. (This is an old Carter Family Song.)
"Miss the Mississippi & You", Jerry Lee solo.

I'm not going to lie to you -- I have loved Jerry Lee Lewis for over 50 years and rejoice that here is a collection of great songs, some new. He is lauded by Merle Haggard and Kris Kristofferson as he sings their songs, and they accompany him, and by Kid Rock, who calls Jerry "the real deal." Guitar gods Slash, Eric Clapton and James Burton embellish some of the selections here. This EP is a "preview of coming attraction" -- a full CD of new and old songs is due in 2010. He's still got it! If you're a JLL fan, come chat with us at JerryLeeLewisIFC@YahooGroups.com (International Fan Club).
