Rock & Roll Time‘s front cover seems to advise us what we can find: The Killer poses in front of Sun Records studios in Memphis. The album contains covers as ‘Little Queenie’ (Chuck Berry), ‘Stepchild’ (Bob Dylan), ‘Mississippi Kid’ (Lynyrd Skynyrd), a cover version from one of the Country Blues pioneer, ‘Blues Like Midnight’ by Jimmie Rodgers, and thanks to his wife, one of two songs where Lewis plays guitar, ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ (Johnny Cash). His first album for Vanguard Records.
As he did in his last two releases Last Man Standing (2006) and Mean Old Man (2010), he has counted again with some of his own followers, in this case Keith Richards, Ron Wood, Neil Young and Robbie Robertson among others.
Jim Keltner has been on drums, regarded by some as the best studio session drummer — whose resume is impressive, he has worked with three of The Beatles (Harrison, Lennon, Ringo Starr), or four depending… (Yoko Ono), with Joe Cocker, Booker T. Jones, Ry Cooder, and a long etc.
