"Carl Perkins is truly one of the all time greatest legends of rock and roll, but he was also a fine country singer. These recordings show Carl at his very best and his version of Detroit City is so beautiful. I can't tell you how much Bear Family means to me. They have made some outstanding CD's and box sets over the years and this is one of the best. I highly recommend it for all Perkins fans or even country fans."

"I've always been a fan of Carl Perkins' Rockabilly, but this CD covers his foray into the country music scene...shortly after the death of rockabilly and the intro of the Beatles. In all honesty, I think Carl tried a little too hard, and throughout this album, seems compelled to remind the listener that he is Country. While nearly every single track on this 30-track CD is good, a few of the numbers seem a little strained. Personally, I'd have preferred to have seen Carl hit the Country Music scene just as unapologetically as Jerry Lee did. Now, with that said, Carl can play and sing rings around Jerry Lee; and truth of the matter is, around many of the so-called Country musicians of that era of the sickening Nashville Sound. This is a very good album, but just dont expect the effortless smoothness that Carl provided with his rock-n-roll sound....keep in mind, this a new sound for him. This is a Bear Family release; one of their few single-CD albums! A great set of liner notes and recording session info is provided. A Very Good album and well worth a listen."
