Linda Gail Lewis (1965)

The Dave Wiley Show online on 28. January 2016:
´Today, we have Linda Gail Lewis. If that name sounds familiar, it should. She was the duet partner for her brother, Jerry Lee Lewis, during some of his most productive years, and went on to her solo career and recording an album with Van Morrison. She talks about singing duets with two of the most stylistic vocalists ever, and about her new album, Hard Rockin´Woman on The Dale Wiley Show

25. January 1976 - Greensboro, NC - Coliseum

25. Januar 2016

After thirteen shows in six days in Toronto Killer plays at the Coliseum in Greensboro, NC on 25. January 1976.

Gail Hyatt for The Rebel:
A crowd of about 5000 people was at the Greensboro, N.C. Coliseum Sunday, January 25, 1976 to enjoy the talents of the Killer, Freddy Fender and Connie Cato. The other performers did good shows; but needless to say, Jerry´s performance was outstanding. After thirteen shows to standing room only crowds in Toronto, Canada, 40 degrees below zero weather and 2 foot of snow, plus only 5 hours sleep Saturday night one would expect an or­dinary entertainer to appear a little less than himself! But we are not watching an ordinary performer - we are watching the ´greatest live show on earth´ and Jerry is definitely his usual energetic, enthusiastic self, keeping the audience amazed and entertained for an hour and half.

Jerry´s perfor­mance covered ever facet of music from a classic Judy Garland song,´Some­where Over The Rainbow´, done twice in the traditional style and again in Killer style complete with some fiddle playing and country beat, to the true ´Killer Kountry Klassics´ - ´What Makes Milwaukee Famous´, ´She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye´ and ´Another Place, Another Time´. The audience rocked to Jerry´s updated version of ´Great Balls Of Fire´ complete with some typical Killer fancy dance steps and truly appreciated Jerry Lee´s medley of his favorite religious songs induding ´Peace ln The Valley´,´Will The Circle Be Unbroken´ and ´Precious Memories´.

The Lady - Linda Gail Lewis - is back on the road with her brother again and we were very happy to see her again. Although a week on the road had left everyone a little less than their normal selves, Linda seemed to thrive on the shows and the performances and the hectic pace the group had kept up for the past six days. Looking truly beautiful in a navy and white pantsuit, she gave the audience an opportunity to see that ´little Sister Lewis´ can hold the attention of an audience (especially the male members) almost as much as ´Big Brother´. Her version of the hit, ‘´I´m A Woman´ caught the audience off guard and all sat up and took notice as Linda really got into the fast tempo of the song. As always, the Memphis Beats were in top form and an asset to the stage performances of both Linda and Jerry Lee. Much too soon the show ended and it was time to head for the airport and home to Memphis.

Golden Stallion Dance Hall

On 21. August 1970 Jerry Lee Lewis played at the Golden Stallion Dance Hall in San Antonio, TX.
At the time the Golden Stallion on 1500 Akerman Road was one of the big spots to go for country music and a fun place to dance, many popular country acts performed there….a few years later, an Auto Auction bought the Stallion.
Below some impression of Killer’s show there in pictures….unfortunately no show report available at the moment.

06. August 1965 - Holyoke MA - Mountain Park Amusement Center

On 06. August 1965 Jerry Lee Lewis played two shows during a 9-days-tour at the Mountain Park Amusement Center in Holyoke, MA.

Show review by Bruno Le Trividic for ‘Teen Beat Letter’:
On August 6, I take another bus to Holyoke where I am supposed to see Jerry again. He plays in the ballroom of an amusement park. That hall is very nice, very large and very American too, and this time teenagers are authorized to come in to the show, and that changes the climax.

I start to get friend with Jerry´s musicians. Morris tells me about the girls in Paris, whom he had appreciated when he came to the ´Guitare d´Or´ show in Paris in 1963. His talks seem to stop there. Anyway, this August 6 I´m going to witness one of the best concert that Jerry ever gave, from the opinion of those who know him much better than I do. I take their word at granted, Jerry got me stunned that night, he left me ´breathless´. The first show was perfect and the audience responded perfectly. The second show was exceptional. Jerry, seeing that the audience was fully supporting him, got wild. Really fantastic. You just had to look at his face to be carried away. Jerry really lives his songs. There is no gimmick in his stage act.

He sang: Down the line / Got you on my mind / Rockin´ pneumonia (twice by request from the audience) / This must be the place / High school confidential / High heel sneakers / Crazy arms / Good golly Miss Molly / Tutti frutti / Sexy ways / Whole lotta shakin´goin´on / What´d I say, and for this terrific audience, he played two songs, supposed to be on his country and western LP. One slow song – Remember Me – and a fantastic version of Charlie Rich´s hit – Lonely Weekends..
He finished the show totally exhausted and sweating.

We followed Jerry in his dressing room. We talked while drinking impressive quantities of beers and coke. Jerry seemed disappointed by the poor sales of the LP ´The Return of Rock´ and most of all by the single ´Rockin´ Pneumonia´ who he considers as his best on the SMASH label.
In summary, Jerry doesn´t really know what more he should do. But laughing, he added:
« But they didn´t get me, slowly but surely, I´m on my way back ! »

The hotel where Jerry was staying being full, I had to spend the night in Boston, with a long road in Matt Masterson´s Cadillac. Next day, we left again for another show in Fall River.
