Very interesting...It looks as if it's from very late 1964 or early-mid 1965 (this is when he had his hair bleached for the first time in years). It looks like a proper music show rather than a 'family' show, so my guess is 'Bruce Morrow's Go-Go Show', May 11th 1965. He also appeared on 'Hollywood A Go-Go' twice in late 1964 but I've seen clips of other artists & the set looks different. Other possibilities are 'The Soupy Sales Show', 'The Clay Cole Show' & 'The Lloyd Thaxton Show', all from early 1965.

Jerry did lots of U.S. TV during 1964-1965, but he did just one in 1966 ('Upbeat'), & none in 1967.

PS. Can someone get a screen shot of this clip? Would be nice for if/when we make a database / wiki.

All those clips needen't be from the same show I suppose. It looks like someone with an 8mm home camera recorded straight off the telly. A true 'kinescope'.

Amazing to think even the expert hasn't seen this then . . it's quite possibly all that remains of this TV show.

He looks fantastic!

Definately not. The Beatles clip is from 'Shindig', but I already have all 5 of Jerry's 'Shindig' appearances on DVD & the clip of him isn't from this show.

The Bob Dylan clip is from the Les Crane Show, in Feb 1965.

And The Beatles clip is from 7th October 1964 (taped in London on 3rd October).

According to the description on Youtube they are from 1964/5. I have emailed the postee to see if he can give any details.

Kay Martin doesn't recognise the show, but I've asked one of the world's foremost experts on 60s music shows & he said that he's 99% sure that this is from The Llloyd Thaxton Show. This would be from January 1st 1965, with Jerry performing 'High Heel Sneakers' & 'Great Balls of Fire'. He also appeared on this show on October 30th 1964 (performing 'High Heel Sneakers' & 'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On'), but his hair was still dark then so it can't be from this appearance.

Great research & info Peter!!!

Let´s hope Chris gets a response with more details, as of how much he filmed? And if he also made a separate audio recording.

I doubt if the person who filmed it even remembers, & I'd say the chance of an audio is zilch!

Anyway, maybe this was a mimed TV show? Jerry certainly mimed on 'American Bandstand' a couple of months earlier (he was so desperate to get back on U.S. primetime TV at the time that he didn't insist on playing 'live' as in earlier / later times!).

This is the reply from the person who posted this clip:

"I haven't the foggiest. Shot off tv in Chicago in late 1964. I was excited, I shot a tiny bit. Made no notes. My parents got mad at me using expensive movie film for shots off tv. Well, it's good I did!"

No, unfortunately it's not The Beatles & Jerry Lee Lewis playing together. They're from different shows.

Actually, I'm wondering if Jerry & Paul McCartney have ever met?

He met John Lennon in Los Angeles in 1973; George Harrison at Carl Perkins' funeral in 1998; & Ringo Starr played drums for Jerry in Atlanta in 1987 (& of course sang on LMS in 2005).
