Old Time Religion-Rare Recordings of Jerry Lee Lew
Just after a string of country smashes, Jerry Lee renounced secular music and dove into gospel…for a few months. Recorded live with his band at a small church on Highway 51 in Memphis, these 1971 tracks find him at his most impassioned: Someone to Care; The Old Rugged Cross; Amazing Grace; I’ll Fly Away; My God Is Real; Looking for a City, and more. He testifies, preaches and even jokes between songs; his label, though, had no idea what to do with these tracks—which is why they went originally unissued! The best gospel recordings of his career.
