You could go to "amazon.co.uk" or "amazon.de" - they're also available there. I note that they are presenting the first album 'back to front' (i.e. it starts with "Rockin' My Life Away"; the two sides of the LP are transposed). If and when these are released as CDs I hope the 'error' isn't repeated!

BUMP!

Haven´t been listening to this great record much, many great songs I´ve never heard until now!

Found a compilation(?)album called Rockin my life away on grooveshark: http://grooveshark.com/#/album/Rockin+M ... way/298395

The half of it is from Rocket but whats the rest from? A compilation of all three Elektraalbums?

Well, none of it's from Rocket - they're all from Jerry's three Elektra albums.

That´s my opinion, too!!

But, I think Eddie Kilroy did a slightly better job than Bones Howe (which doesn´t mean Bones Howe did a bad job!).

...and for myself:
I agree with both of these points!

do the Elektra downloads accurately replicate the original albums, with the correct fade outs and JLl ad libs etc, many were omitted or altered on the Elektra years cd which spoilt my personal listening pleasure, these albums have stayed on the to be played often shelf and are not garnering dust in the far end like the MCa albums, Rocket, Sire and recent Duets cds

I always dug the Bones Howe production more than Eddie K's, that`s just a matter of taste and opinion of course, bought the first album as an import in HMV london the morning after the great Rainbow show, had to run from my digs in paddington to the store (near Marble Arch, or was it a small branch of Virgin??) which opened at 9:30am and be back in Paddington to catch the 10am train back to south Wales, fittest i`ve ever been,

Just listenend to Jukebox Junky three times over and blown away. Don't know why, but "Killer Country" is the least worn of my four Elektra albums. It's a shame Jerry didn't play more of his Elektra material in live UK shows during this period instead of relying more on his earlier Sun and Mercury recordings (I'm thinking particularly of his '83 UK tour).

One thing I love about the Elektra albums is the cover artwork (so much so I've a 600x600 print on canvas of the first self-titled album cover by Mick Haggerty hanging in my hallway), and I wonder why Ron Coro at Elektra didn't commission another piece of artwork for "Killer Country" instead of using photography. After all, he went back to artwork for the '82 "Best of" album.

During 1980 to 1983 Jerry performed around a dozen Elektra songs in the UK (he even dug out 'Alabama Jubilee' in Cardiff in '83), & in the USA he performed others such as 'Everyday I Have To Cry', 'Too Weak To Fight' & 'Late Night Lovin' Man'. So he didn't exactly ignore these albums. Indeed, I've heard live versions of every track on 'When Two Worlds Collide' with the exception of 'Love Games', & can't think of another studio album where he's performed so many songs on stage.

Country Class also comes close (the only songs I haven't heard live are "I Sure Miss Those Good Old Times" & "After The Fool You've Made Of Me"). Of course, he we haven't heard many live audios from 1975 - 1976, so it's quite possible that all these songs were played live at one time.
