Yikes! Jerry Lee Lewis married a 13 year old girl! But hey, he was only 23 years old... Maybe I should be looking for 15 year old boys... woohoo.
However, this album proves that music and private life of an musician have to be separated. This is a brilliant live performance. Jerry Lee Lewis plays the piano like a maniac: his band can't even catch up in the first songs. And he keeps up the piano slamming / wild singing during the whole gig! He must have been on drugs... Or maybe that's the effect of a 13 year old woman, haha.
So, yes, Jerry Lee Lewis is great. He's just a bit too great for me. A little bit too rock 'n' roll. I can't really tell why, but listening to this album made me really want to listen to some calmer music. Maybe it is because a lot of rock 'n' roll albums have passed the revue already, but I've had it a little bit. (It doesn't help that all rock 'n' roll artists seem to want to sing the same songs)
