Stepchild - Jerry Lee Lewis

from the album Rock & Roll Time (2014)

I woke up at 2:15am this morning trying to meet a deadline for some folks in Europe.  I've got the espresso machine working double duty and my dog is giving me that "are we going fishing?" look.  At times like these, finding the right tunes is essential.

So I'm listening to the new Jerry Lee Lewis album.  That's right.  The Killer is still releasing great stuff at the age of 79.  It leaves me breathless.

I have been particularly digging the Stepchild, a cover of an obscure Bob Dylan tune.  It is a rockin'-ramblin' song.  The type you would expect to hear in some swampy backwater juke joint.  Jerry Lee sounds great.  I can't stop listening.

Also check out Here Comes That Rainbow Again, a slow ballad sung as a duet with Shelby Lynne.

  1. Jerry Lee just hit the key, 'cause your tone goes to the bone! Old holds no limit on those that are the true artists of our time.
