101 Songs I Love #1

Mean Woman Blues (Live at the Star Club, Hamburg 1964) - Jerry Lee Lewis

As far as I am concerned, Jerry Lee Lewis is the true King of Rock'n'Roll and if there is one recording that exists on planet earth that is THE definitive proof of that it's the Live At The Star Club album. Indeed I won't argue with anyone who calls this the greatest live record of all time. For me this is the standout track on it. It's not one of his more famous tracks of course, but it's just an out and out Rock'n'Roll stomper. Kicks things off with a bang. If I had a time travelling machine, this would be one night I'd be going back to.
