The Record Currently Blowing My Mind

Tonight I drank a little wine and took my dog (and my i-pod) for a walk along the tracks. It was a warm spring night, after dark, and my mood was perfect for Jerry Lee Lewis's double country CD Another Place Another Time/She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye.

Damn! Jerry Lee can lay down some hard country music. I know I just posted about the Killer, but I have to come back to him again. This record is incredible. If you don't believe me, take it from a professional: All Music Guide Review.

Seriously, there is not a bad track on this thing. Right now it's residing in the number one spot on my turntable (figuratively speaking) and I can't recommend it highly enough. If you love real country music you need to own this disc. That's all.

Jerry Lee Lewis – Waiting For A Train

Jerry Lee Lewis – Once More With Feeling

(order it now).

If it's not working for you right now, drink some wine and take you dog for a walk along the train tracks. Context can be everything.

Nice blog you have here. If you don't mind, I'm going to add it to my music directory/blogroll @ http://music-bloggers.blogspot.com

If you would like to help me out, you can do so by linking back to me, although it isn't required in order to make the list. Thanks for the music and your hard work. Take care

Great blog, Paul.. Jerry's country work is the real deal, isn't it? My particular favourite is 'How's My Ex Treating You?' but it just sneaks to the top of a list of a whole host of great country sides.. 'I'm Sorry, I'm Not Sorry', 'I Forgot To Remember To Forget You', 'I'll Make It All Up To You'.. great stuff. Just Jerry and his piano on Frankie Laine's 'That Lucky Old Sun' is about as good as it gets.
