Collecting various live performances that were recorded between 1979 and 1985, this album captures Jerry Lee Lewis at the financial low point of his career. By the late seventies (a few years before the Great Balls of Fire film revitalized his commercial standing), Lewis' country records were no longer selling and Lewis found himself back in the small clubs where he had started out in the fifties. What makes THE COMPLETE PALOMINO CLUB RECORDINGS so remarkable is that despite his faded commercial clout, Lewis sings and plays with the same ferocity he displayed on his classic '50s hits.
This 42-track set is packed with high-energy, good-natured performances of Lewis' rock and roll classics like "Great Balls of Fire" and "Whole Lotta' Shakin' Goin' On" as well as lively versions of his country hits like "You Win Again" and "You Belong To Me." With his voice and pumping piano style as powerful as ever and his between song wisecracks coming fast and furious, THE COMPLETE PALOMINO CLUB RECORDINGS is a pure shot of roadhouse rock and roll from one of the true rock greats.
