25 Years of Jerry Lee Lewis: A Celebration (1982)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This television special aired nearly a year after Jerry Lee Lewis had nearly died from stomach issues. Obviously no one knew what the future held for Lewis so some of the biggest names in country music came out to pay tribute to him and the result was this setlist:

Whole Lotta Shaking' Going' On / Thirty Nine and Holding / Blue Suede Shoes (with Carl Perkins) / Great Balls of Fire / Chantilly Lace (w/The Oak Ridge Boys) / Bobbie Sue (The Oak Ridge Boys solo) / Folsom Prison Blues (w/Johnny Cash solo) / You're Not Easy to Forget (w/Dottie West) / Sweet Thang (w/West) / For the Good Times / One More With Feeling (w/Kristofferson) / Me and Bobbie McGee (w/Kristofferson) / Help Me Make it Through (w/Kristofferson) / Object of My Affection-Hey Good Lookin' (w/Mickey Gilley) / The Most Beautiful Girl (w/Charlie Rich) / Don't the Girls All Get Prettier at Closing Time (w/Rich and Gilley) / Behind Closed Doors (w/Rich and Gilley) / Who's Gonna Play This Old Piano? / I'll Fly Away (ensamble)

As you can tell, there's a lot of music on display for a special that runs just under a hour. There's pretty much non-stop music from the word go with just a few words spoken in between everything. Lewis doesn't look 100% healthy but there's no question he's playing his heart out and he delivers a very strong and entertaining performance. Viewing this special today is even more special when you consider that a lot of the people featured here are no longer with us. Some of the highlights include Lewis kicking things off with a great version of Whole Lotta Shaking' Going' On as well as great duets on Hel Me Make it Through, The Most Beautiful Girl and Behind Closed Doors.
