Fifty years ago today, Jerry Lee Lewis and the Nashville Teens played two sets at the Star-Club in Hamburg, West Germany. The shows were edited down to a dozen songs by producer Siggi Loch and released in 1964 as Live! At The Star-Club, widely heralded as one of the greatest live rock and roll records ever made. In 2009 I published Jerry Lee Lewis: Lost and Found, which bookends a history of the Star-Club and the recording of the album with examinations of Lewis’s tumultuous career before and after the mid-1960s.
Now, in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Star-Club album, Bloomsbury Publishing USA is running a contest where the lucky winner will receive a copy of Lost and Found personally autographed by Jerry Lee Lewis himself!
Details coming early next week. Stay tuned. And spread the word.
