Synopsis

Amazon.com
While his groundbreaking 1956 Sun recording of "Blue Suede Shoes" helped rock & roll get off the ground, a car crash that injured Perkins and his brother Jay that year prevented the guitarist from cashing as heavily as he should have. By 1958 Perkins, like most of the early Sun gang, had moved to another label--in his case, Columbia, where fellow Sun pioneer Johnny Cash had also found a home. Trying to recreate the atmosphere of his early records, Perkins came up with footwear-themed items such as "Pink Pedal Pushers" and "Pointed Toed Shoes," but the best tracks of this retrospective are more wide-angled fare such as "Going to Memphis," "Restless," and "Big Bad Blues." --Billy Altman
