Jerry Lee Lewis: Southern Roots - The Original Sessions (2-LP)

2-LP Vinyl-Album, 20 Einzeltitel. 180-Gramm Vinyl, Aufklapphülle. Direct Metal Mastering. Pressung durch Pallas.

Die legendären 1974er Sessions aus dem Trans Maximus Studio in Memphis, Tennessee mit Jerry Lee Lewis - voc/piano, begleitet von Stax-Studiomusikern, Mitgliedern von der Blues Brothers Band und Booker T. & The MGs (Steve Cropper - guitar, Donald 'Duck' Dunn - bass, Al Jackson Jr. - drums), Carl Perkins - guitar, Tony Joe White - guitar, The Memphis Horns, u.a.

Endlich konnten wir die Originalbänder von den Sessions auftreiben, aus denen 1974 Jerry Lee Lewis' 'Southern Roots' Vinyl-LP hervorging. Der Produzent hieß Huey Meaux, ein weiterer Wilder aus Louisiana. Das Endergebnis zeigt, was passiert, wenn zwei feurig-scharfe, unkonventionelle Typen im Studio ihre Kräfte messen.

Meaux war soeben aus dem Gefängnis entlassen worden. Jemanden mit seinem Ruf möchten Sie nicht in Ihrem Familienstammbaum haben. Jeder für sich alleine bedeutete schon nichts Gutes; unmöglich, mit dem einen oder anderen zusammenzuarbeiten. Doch beide zusammen? Gott allein wußte, was dann passieren würde. Das Ergebnis könnte eine völlige Katastrophe oder ein Geniestreich sein. Wie Meaux später bemerkte: "Ich wußte, daß Jerry Lee Lewis und ich miteinander kämpfen würden, doch zu guter Letzt würden wir eine Schallplatte abliefern. Wir haben gekämpft, und wir haben geliefert."

Während dreier Tage im September 1973 gingen Jerry Lee Lewis und Huey Meaux die Sache an - und sich gegenseitig an den Kragen. Hören Sie zu, wie er im Studio durchdreht, weil ein Produzent versucht, sein Ego zu zügeln. In Wahrheit unternahm Meaux alles, um Jerry Lee Lewis' Selbstgefühl zu steigern. Dieses Ego ist an keiner Stelle deutlicher als bei seiner Version des Percy Sledge-Hits When A Man Loves A Woman, den er in eine Predigt zum Krieg der Geschlechter umwandelt.

Jerry Lee Lewis und Meaux nahmen fast ausschließlich Southern Music auf – Soul, Country, R&B und etwas Swamp Pop – und eine überraschend leidenschaftliche Version von Johnny Rays Hit Cry aus dem Jahre 1952.

Wir hatten keine Ahnung, daß es ursprünglich ein zweites 'Southern Roots' Album geben sollte. Nur zehn Titel erschienen damals auf Vinyl-LP, knapp 34 Minuten Musik. Doch wir haben alles von damals zusammengetragen, auch die Aufnahmen, die das zweite, 'verschollene' Album bilden sollten, alles fein säuberlich überspielt und zur Veröffentlichung vorbereitet. Wir bekamen auch das, was Sie ursprünglich nie zu hören bekommen sollten; und davon gibt es reichlich.

Rund vierzig Jahre später können Sie Mäuschen spielen und beobachten, wie Jerry Lee Lewis und Meaux aufeinander losgehen, lachen, sich streiten und spät bis in die Nacht Musik machen. So haben Sie Jerry Lee Lewis noch nie gehört!

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Lewis, Jerry Lee"

Jerry Lee Lewis rocks.

Well, of course he does. "I come out feet first and been jumpin' ever since," he has told interviewers for many years. He has been rocking for as long as most of us can remember, and now his face is a personal geography that speaks of the toll that rock 'n' roll can exact. Rock 'n' roll music and the rock 'n' roll lifestyle: Jerry Lee has done as much as anyone to define both. The miles, the wives, the hits, the pills. He has lived and sung without compromise. Surely no one has damned the torpedoes more often, and lived to tell. He saw his career rise meteorically, plummet meteorically, and rise again. True talent cannot be denied. "Other people," says Jerry, "they practice and they practice. These fingers of mine, they got brains in 'em. You don't TELL them what to do - THEY do it."  There are but four stylists in music, he'll tell you: Jimmie Rodgers, Al Jolson, Hank Williams, and himself. It was a foregone conclusion that Jerry Lee Lewis would be a charter inductee to the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.

Fifty years ago as of this writing, Jerry Lee Lewis and his father, Elmo, drove up from Ferriday, Louisiana to see Mister Sam Phillips at Sun Records. Jerry Lee was sure that Phillips would understand him. He'd been turned away in Nashville, yet Phillips would see his potential. They were destined to come together: Lewis the former divinity student tortured by an unfathomable religion, and Phillips the former mortician's assistant who had persuaded unlettered country folk to give up their dead.

Jerry Lee's indomitable mother, Mamie, had stopped him from listening to records because she didn't want him to sound like anyone else. Every day, Jerry Lee would pound the old Starck upright, slowly discovering something that was truly his. A little boogie woogie, a little gospel, a little Hank Williams, and a little beerjoint blues. The Lewises lived in Ferriday, Louisiana, and Jerry Lee was born there on September 29, 1935, six months after his cousin, Jimmy Swaggart. He was twenty-one when he arrived in Memphis, telling the people at Sun Records that he played piano like Chet Atkins. Sam Phillips encouraged him to write songs, but the only tangible result was the B-side of his first record, End Of The Road. Phillips copyrighted it without realizing that it had been loosely adapted from Ballard McDonald and James Handley's 1922 song At The End Of The Road. The only other song from Jerry Lee's pen on this collection is the monumentally egotistical Lewis Boogie. For Jerry, about Jerry, and by Jerry.

Very quickly, Sam Phillips saw that, unlike Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis would interpret rather than write. He would reveal himself to us through the words of others. Phillips also understood that he must let Lewis plunder the musical reliquary in his head before encouraging him to return to the one song out of ten or twenty that held promise. That's how Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On came to be recorded. Jerry Lee had probably heard Roy Hall play it at an after-hours club in Nashville (Hall claimed to be the mysterious co-writer 'Sunny David' although that seems very unlikely). In the opening four bars, Jerry Lee Lewis and Sam Phillips made the piano into a percussion instrument. In feeding the signal back upon itself at just the right increment of tape delay, Phillips fattened the sound to the point that the record throbs with its own hypnotic life by the time J. M. Van Eaton's drums come in. Van Eaton is exactly where he needs to be: it's textbook stuff, and Van Eaton wrote the textbook. In the two or so years that Jerry Lee had been fooling with Shakin', he had refashioned it in his image, stripping away the opening couplet and inserting a half-spoken segment before storming back to close with a triumphant glissando. Wondrous and imperishable. It became Jerry Lee's second record and first hit. The record was pegging out half-way up the charts when Jerry made his first networked television appearance on 'The Steve Allen Show.' It was a landmark date in the history of rock 'n' roll: Sunday July 28, 1957. He hammered the piano, eyes fixed above with messianic intensity. He glared at the camera with wild-eyed fury. "Whose barn? MAH barn!" Shakin'  resumed its upward movement, eventually peaking at #3.

The entertainment business realized that Jerry Lee was an up-and-coming act and he was offered a cameo movie appearance. It's a testament to his genius that he took a slight song manufactured for an equally slight movie, 'Jamboree,'and transformed it into one of the era's classics. That song, of course, was Great Balls Of Fire. Carl Perkins and the movie's other stars had already turned it down, but it became Jerry Lee's defining moment. His biggest pop hit. Some claim to hear a rhythm guitar, but it's essentially Jerry Lee Lewis and drummer J. M. Van Eaton. If there's a third instrument, it's Sam Phillips' reverberation, adding depth and presence.

Two New York-based R&B songwriters, Otis Blackwell and Jack Hammer, had written Great Balls Of Fire and were offered a chance at the follow-up. Blackwell came up with Breathless while Hammer presented Milkshake Mademoiselle. Blackwell got the nod, and Milkshake Mademoiselle was left for wide-eyed European researchers to find some fifteen years later. Blackwell's submission was yet another 'exclamation' song, and Sam Phillips engineered a promotional tie-in between television host Dick Clark and Beechnut chewing gum in which kids could send in 50 cents and five Beechnut wrappers to receive a 'free' autographed copy of Breathless. Everyone at Sun's tiny operation, including lesser artists, were put to work autographing and mailing Jerry Lee's records. The television appearances jump-started the single, and it eventually rose to #7.

Jerry Lee's last Top 20 hit was the title song for another quickie exploitation movie, 'High School Confidential,' starring Mamie Van Doren (whose website has to be visited to be believed). It was supposed to be an exposé of the high school drug problem (yes there was a high school drug problem in 1958). The song was written by Ron Hargrave, a struggling MGM recording artist and protégé of Lou Costello (Hargrave can be seen in Abbott & Costello's last movie, 'Dance With Me Henry'). Try as he might, Hargrave couldn't quite work the title into the song, and had to surrender half of his writer's share to Jerry Lee. In the movie, Jerry performed the song on the back of a flatbed truck. It was released just as he left for a tour of England in May 1958.
