20 Great JLL Songs That You Might've Forgot About...



Postby Rocknmather » Mon Aug 23, 2010 1:23 pm

1) Pee Wee's Place - great piano playing
2) That Old Bourbon Street Church - my all-time favourite
3) Slippin' & Slidin' (the eight minutes version)
4) Don't boogie woogie (when you say your prayers tonight) - full of energy
5) I can help - see 4)
6) Folsom Prison Blues - I don't know whether it is forgotten or not but this is my favourite version of FPB
7) New Orleans Boogie - Killer piano really... Jerry proves he is very skillful pianist
8) Flip Flop & Fly(from "The Mercury years") - nothing beats the Big Joe Turner's original, but this comes very close
9) Poison love
10) The house of blue lights(from "Young blood") - best version ever, although the one from some bootleg called "Three Rivers Stadium Control Boot" is great too
11) Hong Kong Blues
12) Honky tonk stuff
13) Good times Charlie's got the blues

Not only fans, Jerry Lee himself seems to have forgotten most of the songs he recorded in his long career.

One of my favorite less-known songs is 'Mama's Hands'. A very moving tribute to his mother. But there are so many obscure gems among the albums he's recorded. The version of 'Jealous Heart' on the original album is great, I'd love to hear Jerry do this at his live shows. And going back to Sun and rock'n'roll, 'Big Blon' Baby' is often overlooked as it was issued as the flip to 'Lovin' Up A Storm' (another overlooked gem). Both should have been big hits. 'Big Blon' Baby' is so similar to 'Great Balls of Fire' in its construction it could easily have been the follow-up. Which reminds me of yet another neglected gem - 'Milkshake Mademoiselle'.
Long ago in Ferriday down in Louisiana, They all watched Jerry play and pump that old piana

I think no one else has mentioned "Got you on my mind" : great piano and so is also on "Come what may" (piano instrumental). Of course on the album "The Return of the rock" are many really good rockin´less-known songs like Sexy ways, Herman the hermit etc.
