‘Rock & Roll Time’ was originally co-written and recorded by Kris Kristofferson in 1974. Lewis’ rendition features guitarist Doyle Bramhall II and Jon Brion. Recorded at the House of Blues Studio in Memphis, this 11 song collection pulls from the vaults of Chuck Berry (Little Queenie), Bob Dylan (Stepchild), Johnny Cash (Folsom Prison Blues), and Jimmy Reed (Bright Lights, Big City). Full tracklisting below.
On October 28th, Lewis will also be releasing a new book Jerry Lee Lewis: His Own Story, a biography co-authored with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Rick Bragg. Interviewing the American Icon over the course of two summers, Bragg for the first time shares Lewis’s often outrageous story as no one else ever could—straight from the legend’s mouth.
Currently, Jerry Lee Lewis has two upcoming concert dates scheduled: July 5th he will be performing at Harrah’s Resort in Valley Center, CA and on October 30th, at B.B. King’s Blues Club and Grill in New York City. More dates to be announced shortly. For tour updates and information visit www.JerryLeeLewis.com.
