JERRY LEE LEWIS - SOUTHERN ROOTS...PLUS - BEAR FAMILY BAF2-18011
BRAND NEW 2 LP SET - ISSUED AUGUST 2013 - 180 GRAM VIRGIN VINYL
2-LP, 20 tracks. 180-gram vinyl, fold-out sleeve. Direct Metal Mastering. Manufactured by Pallas.
The legendary 1974 sessions form the Trans Maximus Studios in Memphis, Tennessee featuring Jerry Lee Lewis - voc/piano, backed by Stax studio catts and members of the Blues Brothers band, and 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, a.m.o.
long last here are the original session tapes that produced Jerry Lee
Lewis' 1974 'Southern Roots' LP. Produced by Huey Meaux, a fellow
Louisiana wildman, the final results reveal what happens when two fiery,
free-spirited forces lock horns in the studio.
Meaux had just
gotten out of prison and had a reputation you wouldn't want in your
family tree. Separately, Meaux and Lewis each spelled trouble in a big
way and could be impossible to work with. Together? God knows what would
happen. The results could be an utter disaster or a stroke of genius.
As Meaux later observed, "I knew Jerry and I would fight, but in the end
we'd come out with the record. We fought, but we delivered."
For three days in September, 1973 Jerry Lee Lewis and Huey Meaux
went at it, and each other. Listen as Jerry Lee is turned loose in the
studio by a producer who did try to rein in Jerry's ego. In fact, Meaux
did everything he could to feed it. That ego is nowhere more evident
than on Jerry's version of the Percy Sledge 1966 hit, When A Man Loves A Woman, which Jerry turns into a sermon on war between the sexes.
and Huey cut mostly southern music – soul, country, R&B and a touch
of swamp pop. They even included a surprisingly impassioned version of
Johnny Ray's 1952 hit record, Cry.
Little did we know that
there was supposed to be a second 'Southern Roots' album. Only ten
tracks ever appeared on the LP – a scant 34 minutes of music - but we've
got it all here, including the music that was scheduled to appear on
the second 'lost album,' all neatly overdubbed and ready for release.
We've also got the stuff you were never meant to hear, and there's
plenty of it.
Some 40 years later this 2-LP lets you be a fly on
the wall as Jerry and Huey square off at one another, laughing, arguing
and making music late into the night. It's Jerry Lee as you've never
heard him before.
