The Killer: Still Standing

I think I’ll back things up about 40 years today and post a little classic Jerry Lee Lewis. The Killer is undergoing another resurgance in popularity with the release of his latest album, “Last Man Standing,” a compilation of duets with Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen, and members of the Rolling Stones, to name just a few of the artists who lend a hand to this legendary musician.

Jerry Lee’s story has been told and retold so many times, it hardly bears me trying to mash it down to a couple of quick paragraphs. You can probably sum it all up in this quote from the Man himself: “I was born feet first, been rockin' ever since..."

For today’s serving, I grabbed a handful of tracks from an album called “Breathless!”. I suppose it’s a greatest hits-type thing, issued by Pickwick 33 Records. There’s no date on the album, but I bought it in the early 80s. If that helps.

There are so many places to go for more information on Jerry Lee Lewis, to list them all would take more time than I care to spend and you would care to read. Here are just a couple:
