I Love that song. He did it at the Stoke Manderville 'festival' in '93. That show was great! Though at the time I remember I thought it was a short show.

Yes it has such a beautiful melody.
And I think Jerry could still do a very good solo in that song these days.

I picked it for these 2 reasons.

I just love the song!

I know that Jerry wouldn't play any of this songs, specially breathless, but I'd love to see him performing this songs.


'Lewis Boogie', 'Me & Bobby McGee', 'Trouble In Mind' & 'She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye' have all been performed within the last couple of years or so.

I think about 1989 (around this time he seemed to drop many semi-regular songs - as well as Kenny's fiddle!).

Yes, great song! I wasn't at Stoke Mandeville but I've seen him do it at least once, at Wembley '82 (it was on the telecast). Probably even better though is the version on 'The Many Sounds of Jerry Lee'!

Wonderful song!! I miss this kind of material that can't easily be classified (usually these days all he plays is fast rock & roll & slow country + occasionally a little blues).

Incredibly Jerry did a word-perfect version of this in Berlin in 1991!

Haha it´s funny,
I´ve asked myself very very often which kind of "style" Country Memories is; is it Country? is it Rock?

I like his Frankfurt 82 version very much.
Fast ROCKING version I think ... :)

... and I like the Wembley 82 live version even more than the studio recording

great choice Wolfster, I`d add Life`s Railway To Heaven (and Lincoln Limousine to continue the transport theme)

Phil

ps from another thread I always wanted him to cover Hank Snow's Music Making Mama From Memphis

I would ask for Pledging My Love.

I've been blessed to have hear him do it at the Bocholt show. First time I was really moved by a performance of a song. I just could hold back the tears. His current voice suits this song perfectly and makes it even more emotional. He also sang a great version a few days before in Munich.
Definately a song/ moment I will remember for years.

Indeed a great song, I remember he sang this one in Brussels 1972 and it was broadcasted on Belgium TV, he was VERY drunk on that show but he did a great version of that song.

I agree (I have the audio of Brussels '72). This was of course about 8 months before he even recorded the song.

Anyway, i spoke to someone today who usually talks to Jerry backstage before the U.K. shows & he's going to ask for 'Rock & Roll'! :shock:
