Listen to Rory Gallagher and Jerry Lee Lewis perform the Rolling Stones’ Satisfaction

From Loudersoud.

A rare outtake has emerged from Jerry Lee Lewis’s The Session… Recorded In London With Great Artists album – originally released in 1973 – and it’s coming to a record store near you this October.

The cover of The Rolling Stones (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction features Irish blues legend Rory Gallagher alongside alongside Lewis, and will be released on a 7″ single accompanying the upcoming compilation The Best Of Rory Gallagher, due for release in October.

The Session… Recorded In London With Great Artists was a famously feisty session, with musicians including Albert Lee, Alvin Lee, Peter Frampton, Spooky Tooth’s Mick Jones  and Kenney Jones taking part. (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction features Gallagher on vocals and lead guitar, with Lewis adding a piano solo and singing a few lines.

“A bit bamboozled at the lyrics and a bit embarrassed at not really knowing of the song, Jerry’s paranoia kicked in and thought he was being ‘wound-up,’” Donal Gallager, Rory’s brother and manager, tells Rolling Stone. “Annoyance flashed on the Killer’s face, as his wild eyes scanned the studio, fixing on Rory. ‘I trust you boy. Without looking at anyone else but me, tell me truthfully, is there a song called Satisfaction? If so, you start teaching me.’”

The compilation will feature tracks from throughout Gallagher’s career, from his early days with band Taste to his final solo recording, 1990’s Fresh Evidence. Full tracklist below. It’s released on October 9.
