Cajun Pawn Stars uncovers lost Jerry Lee Lewis recording from 1952

A huge part of the success of shows like Pawn Stars and Antiques Roadshow is that you just never know what people are going to bring in. Such is the case in the second episode of The History Channel’s new reality series Cajun Pawn Stars when Silver Dollar Pawn shop owner Jimmie DeRamus is presented with what his customer claims is a Jerry Lee Lewis recording from two years before it was previously thought he cut his first demo.

According to current biographies of Jerry Lee Lewis, he cut his first demo recording in 1954 during a time when he was playing piano at clubs in and around Natchez and Ferriday, Mississippi. (This was just after his infamous expulsion from Southwest Bible Institute in Waxahachie, Texas after performing a boogie woogie rendition of “My God Is Real” at a church assembly – one day after arriving on campus.)

But, according to Louisiana Music Hall of Fame Executive Director Mike Shepherd, that history is about to be re-written thanks to a discovery made in Cajun Pawn Stars!

Jerry Lee Lewis photo

“I’m not allowed to reveal all of the things that will be featured before the shows air, but one that the producers is already promoting is our discovery of Jerry Lee Lewis’ first recording made in 1952 at Cosimo Matassa’s J&M Recording Studio in New Orleans,” Shepherd says. “This is a historical bombshell because virtually all music historians have said Jerry Lee’s first studio work was at Sun Studios in Memphis and rockabilly was his main influence. This recording predates that by years and shows that his style originated with his gospel and country roots in Ferriday and early exposure to the “boogie” piano legacy of New Orleans blues and jazz. It’s yet one more proof to our assertion that rock & roll was born in Louisiana.”

Holy smokes! A Jerry Lee Lewis recording from 1952 that has never been released?!? I’m a huge Jerry Lee Lewis fan and that IS explosive stuff! (Now all of a sudden my Jerry Lee Bear Family box sets seem lacking.)

I’ll be tuning into the show and will update the post if they provide any more info on the recording. Until then, let’s all take a trip back to the early days of rock and roll with a clip of The Killer and his Louisiana boogie roots blowing the roof off the joint with his performance of Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On!”

UPDATE - Here are some more details on the record, which was authenticated on the show as the real deal.

The record was brought in by a man named Cecil Harrison, who was a long-time friend of Jerry Lee Lewis. (Actually, Cecil reveals that he married Jerry Lee’s sister, but it eventually ended in divorce. And then they got married again! Yup, sounds like a Lewis!)

Cecil was with Jerry Lee Lewis when he got the idea to record himself – and that’s exactly what he did at a “J&M Records” do-it-yourself recording studio, which used to be quite common. You go in, pay a couple bucks, sing a song, and walk out with a record. What’s amazing is that the low-grade record was still in good enough shape to play!

Cecil payed $2.25 for the recording and it was appraised on the show to be worth at least $15,000 – $20,000. Jimmie offered as much as $45,000, but Cecil held firm at $100,000 and walked out still in possession of the historic recording.

They played a brief audio clip on the show and I imagine it will eventually surface online at some point, at which point I will add it to the post.

KONCERT GRUPE VAMPIRI

Iako su uvek naglašavali da sviraju du-vap muziku, »Vampiri«  su u medijima često viđeni i kao nastavljači rokabili ili rokabili-pop tradicije. Muziku »Vampira« odlikovale su »pažljivo ispeglane vokalne linije« i »jednostavna muzička matrica«. Sličan zvuk u nekadašnjoj SFRJ izvodio je i splitski sastav »Đavoli«. Sa raspadom zemlje razdvojile su se i publike ova dva sastava.  Kako je počeo rat, u muzici su postale popularni teži tonovi i teže reči, pop muzika kao takva je praktično nestala, a romantične pesme »Vampira« su delovale kao van vremena i prostora .

»Vampiri« su snimili pet albuma, bili dobro praćeni u medijima i održali veliki broj koncerata, između ostalog i dva samostalna u Sava centru, 14. februara 1992. i 1993. godine. Vampiri su snimili preko 50 numera od kojih su neke bile obrade du-vap  hitova iz 1950-ih. Njihova najprepoznatljivija pesma ostao je prvi  hit,  Rama lama ding dong.

 

»Vampiri« se spremaju za veliki povratak na muzičku scenu i zakazali su koncert u Sava – centru za 11.februar. 2012.g., ali pre toga, održaće koncert u negotinskom Domu kulture 10.januara 2012.g.sa početkom u 20 sati.  Inače »Vampiri« su od 02. do 10.januara u Negotinu i u Domu kulture se pripremaju za povratak na muzičku scenu.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KING !!!

Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977) was one of the most popular American singers of the 20th century. A cultural icon, he is widely known by the single name Elvis. He is often referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll" or simply "the King".

Born in Tupelo, Mississippi, Presley moved to Memphis, Tennessee, with his family at the age of 13. He began his career there in 1954, working with Sun Records owner Sam Phillips, who wanted to bring the sound of African American music to a wider audience. Accompanied by guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black, Presley was one of the originators of rockabilly, an uptempo, backbet-driven fusion of country and rhythm and blues. RCA Victor acquired his contract in a deal arranged by Colonel Tom Parker, who would manage the singer for over two decades. Presley's first RCA single, "Heartbreak Hotel", released in January 1956, was a number one hit. He became the leading figure of the newly popular sound of rock and roll with a series of network television appearances and chart-topping records. His energized interpretations of songs, many from African American sources, and his uninhibited performance style made him enormously popular—and controversial. In November 1956, he made his film debut in Love Me Tender.

Rockabilly queen Wanda Jackson on covering Amy Winehouse and Jack White's powers of persuasion

Fans of Hillbilly rock goddess and country crooner Wanda Jackson might've thought the glory days of her 60-year musical career were behind her. Country and rockabilly listeners will remember Jackson's string of hits throughout the late 50s and 60s, like "Right or Wrong," "Tears Will Be The Chaser For Your Wine," and her Grammy-nominated rendition of Jerry Lee Lewis's "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On."

Jackson is nothing if not prolific -- enjoying a brief career resurgence in the 70s before embarking on a gospel kick, and recording a 2003 album with appearances from the likes of Elvis Costello and The Cramps.

After six decades in the music business, the one thing to take from a study of Jackson's career is that the old girl can't ever be counted out. In 2010, the now-74-year-old recording artist met Jack White, who persuaded her to record a covers album that he'd produce. The result is "The Party Ain't Over," an astounding testament to Jackson's continued powers of performance. Think Johnny Cash's American Recordings series, but with more sass and fun. Here are a few gems from a recent LA Weekly interview with Jackson, who played an astounding 86 live shows in 2011.

Jack White can crack the whip: "It was fun working with him. It was challenging also. He pushed me real hard. He wanted more of that 18-year-old Wanda Jackson [laughs]. And I said "Jack, you're pushing me awful hard." And he said "Yeah, but you can do it." And he just kept pushing ..."

Her curious choice of cover tunes: "I thought Jack did a marvelous job of making these songs all fresh and new. Songs like "Rum and Coca Cola" that goes back to the late '40s and "Teach Me Tonight" which is kind of a '50s song. I had fun doing it. It was quite a variety of material."

On channeling Amy Winehouse in "You Know I'm No Good": That's the one people talk about the most on the album. And that's the one that when I heard, I said "Jack, I can't record that song." And he said "Oh, but I think that you should though. It was popular just awhile back. It's just so different from anything of yours. I think it would be great." And so with his leadership and his help in getting me to sing it my style and not trying to do it like Amy, but making it my own song [it became successful]. And he helped me do that. It was the song of the album. It did sound like something of mine.

And that line about being upstairs in bed with an old flame?  "... I told Jack "Well, now I can't sing that second verse that's in here. We'll just skip that verse." He said, "No. Let me just see what I can do with it ..."

Check
out this clip of Wanda Jackson performing "Shakin' All Over" on David Letterman (with Jack White on guitar).
