Jerry Lee Lewis, 'Another Place Another Time'
The late Sixties and early Seventies were stocked with first generation rockers attempting to reinvent themselves to stay fresh: the Four Seasons' The Genuine Imitation Life Gazette, Del Shannon's The Further Adventures of Charles Westover and Lou Christie's Paint America Love were all reclamation projects – but none recreated themselves as successfully as Jerry Lee Lewis. Another Place Another Time introduced Lewis as a country crooner; and a few months later his She Still Comes Around (To Love What's Left of Me) established him as a bona fide Nashville star. Another Place did produce the minor hit "What Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made a Loser Out of Me)," which inspired the name of an indie rock band decades later.
What We Said Then: "This most aptly titled album brings back one of the greatest white R&B performers of the Fifties in his new and very successful role as a country and western artist… An album definitely worth buying if you can find it. For rock aficionados Another Place Another Time is an interesting representation of an early rock & roll star's transformation. For country music lovers, this album introduces another great and moving singer. Hopefully next time we'll get to hear the piano, too." By Andy Boehm, February 1st, 1969
