Jerry Lee Lewis
The Killer still sounds much the same as he did in the late 1950s. His trademark pumping piano and wild mix of country with R&B sounds just as fresh and vital as it did forty years ago. Lewis' crazy stage antics masked his innate shyness. While it was his image that helped propel him to national attention, it was his songs that kept him there: "Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On," "A Great Balls of Fire," and "Breathless" have defined rock'n' roll. Lewis' personal life turned out to be as wild as his stage persona and helped to ruin the first phase of his career his drinking, incest, gun violence, and drug addiction had the press vilifying him as a walking southern stereotype. He made a comeback in country music in the late 60s and had a long period of success there. Since the 80s he has continued to stun live audiences by performing his classic material. To this day, Jerry Lee Lewis gives off more energy than a nuclear reactor, and he's just as volatile.

Live at Montreux, 1981
Runtime: 1 hr 20 minWhen the Stray Cats rolled into Montreux in July of 1981 they were one of the hottest properties around. They had 3 hit singles and a UK top 10 album already under their belts along with a string of headlining concerts, all of which had come since their relocation from New York to London in 1980. The band's combination of original songs and rockabilly classics with a punk attitude and style had caught the moment to perfection. Added to this were their considerable musical accomplishments and knack for songwriting. All in all it was a heady concoction and the crowd in Montreux reacted with near hysterical excitement, something rarely seen in what is usually a polite and reserved audience. This is the Stray Cats at their peak.
Mystery Girl: Unraveled
Runtime: 1 hr 36 minIn the words of Ben Fong-Torres:
What was not to love about Roy Orbison? He was humble, he was friendly, and he had one of the greatest voices in popular music. With songs like “In Dreams” and “Running Scared,” he turned pop tunes into opera, and was called “the Pavarotti of rock and roll.”
The discography of Roy Orbison (1936-1988) - which yielded some of the most heartfelt, passionate classics of the rock ‘n’ roll era - shined even brighter with the release of Mystery Girl, the last album Orbison recorded, in 1989. The commercial success of Mystery Girl was nothing short of impressive: the album was a Top 5 hit, eventually earning Orbison his first platinum award for over 1 million sales, and featured the worldwide Top 10 smash “You Got It.” Mystery Girl: Unraveled features a new hour-long documentary on the making of the album, executive produced by Roy’s sons. The documentary includes new interviews with those behind the album including Steve Cropper, Tom Petty, Mick Campbell and Jeff Lynne. In addition there are eight wonderful music videos, including an unreleased alternate video for “She’s a Mystery to Me” and three new videos for “The Way Is Love,” “You Got It” and “California Blue.

The Everly Brothers
Runtime: 1 hr 15 minWhen asked recently for the most memorable moment of his career, Phil Everly replied “the Albert Hall reunion”. It was September 1983, and ten years on from one of the most acrimonious splits in popular music history, when the Everly Brothers, Don and Phil, took to the stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The Everlys had dominated the charts in the late fifties and early to mid sixties. Their close harmony singing, acoustic guitars and brilliant songwriting had become instantly recognisable and inspired millions of fans worldwide. On an emotional night in London, the reunion was a success and led to the renewal of their partnership and many more years of success, which continue to this day. Bonus Features: “Rock ‘n’ Roll Odyssey” – this documentary, made at the same time as the Albert Hall reunion, tells the complete story of the Everly Brothers up to that point in time. Don and Phil tell their story with additional contributions from Linda Ronstadt, Chet Atkins and many more.
