The first JLL Video / CD / DVD?



The first JLL Video / CD / DVD?

Postby peterchecksfield » Mon Dec 17, 2007 5:51 pm

I think everyone on here must know what Jerry's first single & album were, but what were the first:

(a) Official Home Video?

(b) CD?

(c) DVD?



I think I can answer the first one myself: the first videotape to feature just Jerry was the Slough '80 1st show (simply called 'Jerry Lee Lewis live' or something similar), though I'm fairly certain that 'Music Video 8' featuring Jerry's 1974 'In Concert' performance (as well as Little Anthony & The Imperials, Freddie Cannon, Rufus Thomas & Del Shannon) was in the shops before this. Both of these tapes were released in 1980 or early 1981.

(a) Official Home Video? Agreed, the Slough of despond...

(b) CD? "Ferriday Fireball" on Charly (I think...) or maybe "The Session"

(c) DVD? ... a tough one, that... may have been " I Am What I Am" (?)

I think The Session was before this, but won't swear to it.

The first bootleg JLL CD must've been 'The Killer's Private Stash', back in 1991.

And the first vinyl JLL bootleg was what? That one with the yellow cover, 'Rare Jerry Lee' or something?

My first Jerry Lee record was "Live At The Star-Club" in late 80's. It's still my favorite.

Do you agree on this Andrew? I thought there was a bootleg vinyl Ep prior to this. But perhaps only Lp´s counts?

No, any vinyl bootlegs. I'm not familier with the EP though(?).

The very first bootleg was the Dutch EP Jerry Lee Lewis on Rockville Records R-EP 101. I have this one in my collection and some of the live tracks from Rare Sound 1114 are definetely from this EP produced by
Cees Klop in the mid 60`s.

Songs are:

Side 1
MIlkshake Mademoiselle
We Three
Interview with Kay Martin

Side 2
Mexicali Rose
Hound Dog
I´m In Love Again (Little Richard)


Hound Dog and the Interview with Kay are not on the Rare sound 1114 bootleg.

Thanks Peter, i figured this was the first one! Also thanks for your detailed descripton. Perhaps the Kay Martin interview needs to be renewed & recorded for the Internet generation?

Is this the backstage interview between Jerry & Kay from Memphis '61? If so I have this (same show as We Three).

The Interview is only a very, very short clip called "Interview door Kay Martin" and includes a few seconds dialogue between Jerry and Kay from the states.

It´s very likely , that a few more of these bootleg EP´s were released in Holland at this time and distributed after shows and fanclub meetings.
In my opinion, Pierre must have the best knowledge about this subject.

Yes, Peter, you´re right - this is the backstage interview from Memphis 1961, but on the bootleg EP are only the first 30" from the dialogue.

When I remember right, the bootleg CD "The Killer´s Private Stash" was released in September 1991 (?)

I don´t have the release date of the Johnny Cash bootleg CD "Rockabilly Reunion" in mind, including Jerry Lee and Carl live from Rotterdam April 19/1981 - but I don´t think that this one was really earlier. (White Rabbit
Records)

Was this "Rockabilly Reunion" really a bootleg? I mean in the sence of availability at record stores etc. In vinyl perhaps? I never saw it anywhere from the time until today, i never seen it anywhere at all.
