I want a bodyguard by the name of "Big Dick".

I have a copy of the soundtrack album to the film of Carch My Soul, this is one of the few places I've actually seen it mentioned. I didn't know that Jerry Lee had been involved with it in any way, it would have been great to see him in the film and have him on the album.

I knew about Jerry's appearance in the play from the bio boolklet included in a "Greatest Hits" album from the 1980's, and had always wondered if there was any recording of it, visual or audie. how can I get a copy of these recordings? The sound quality is wonderful and as a student of the classics and a fan of the Killer and Rockabilly in general, I would love to see, or at least hear the whole thing.

And one of these days I will finish my rockabily musical "Spartacats," that re-interprets the birth of Rock & Roll as the story of Spartacus.

Wish I could point you towards more, but these two recordings are all I've been able to find - from a JLL bootleg called The Killer's Private Stash. There may be a full recording somewhere (these tracks were actually from a taped rehearsal), but I have not heard any mention of any film footage existing. You should, however, track down a copy of Robert Sawyer's paper on the play - more about that here.

I'll be glad to send a PDF of the Jerry Lee Lewis essay "A Whole Lot of Shakespeare Goin On" to you if you'll provide me with the best contact info.

I was hoping to read that there was an official release of Jerry Lee's Catch My Soul recordings - the two posted here are brilliant, but maybe that's due to the rehearsal nature of the session. Thanks for sharing!
