Jerry Lee Lewis Last night at Strathmore, Bethesda

taken from

First characteristics of last night's show in North Bethesda, Maryland

Edmund sent in the following report. Thanks Edmund!

The band did:
1) Slippin' And Slidin'
2) Lonely Weekends
3) Johnny B. Goode
4) [Some blues song but I forgot the name]

Jerry came out and did the following:

1) Roll Over Beethoven
2) Over The Rainbow
3) Drinkin' Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee
4) Georgia On My Mind (made some nice comments about Ray, saying how he enjoyed his movie)
5) Before The NIght Is Over
6) Mexicali Rose
7) You Win Again
8) Crazy Arms (by request)
9) Chantilly Lace
10 Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On
11) Great Balls Of Fire ((extented piano solo, like movie soundtrack. Was great.)

Sorry, I don't remember the direct order in which he did the songs. He did say before he did Before The Night Is Over that his album was being released this month. He added that he has heard this month after month, but they promised him it's coming out this month.Jerry was in perfect form, although he walked out very slowy and left slowy, and you could hear his age when he spoke. However, when he played the piano and sang he was in perfect form. I couldn't believe how great he sounded. I give this show 5 stars all the way. I wasn't disappointed, if there was ever a disappointment it was only in the fact I wanted him to play all night long. The whole show counting his band's number lasted 75 minutes, so I don't htink anyone got cheated. And Jerry was out there most of the time! so I would say Jerry's was between 45 - 60 min's long, so I thought he did well.

Wolff addition:

the unidentified song by the band was "Big Boss Man"! and the band's "johnny b goode" was more like a chuck berry medley which included "sweet little rock'n'roller"
Also jerry lee lewis played "Sweet Little Sixteen" after "roll over betthoven"

and he played "trouble in mind"
