Editorial Reviews

Incredibly, this is the first full career retrospective of Carl Perkins. This is the very best of the groundbreaking Sun recordings, the best of the late '50s/early '60s Columbia recordings, the cream of the ultra-rare Decca sides, and the later Columbia and Mercury recordings, plus 2 previously unissued tracks produced by Bill Lloyd (including Carl's version of John Hiatt's Memphis In The Meantime). Get this 31 track CD and you have a stunning overview of one of the great careers in popular music, plus two recordings you won't find anywhere else! It's a cross-label compilation with his best-rocking sides. CD Digipak with 48-page booklet.

5.0 out of 5 stars You won't go wrong December 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is the album to buy if you don't want the entire Bear Family collection. This is a great overview, with all of Carl Perkins' important '50s recording as well as the best of his later period. There are even two unreleased tunes from his later period that I hadn't heard before. As for the early stuff, it has his hits, and it has songs like "Her Love Rubbed Off" and "Caldonia" that are relics of an era gone by. It's only apparent now -- six years after the death of the great rockabilly -- exactly how good he was as a singer, guitarist and song writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something really special February 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Carl Perkins invited rockabilly music. This luxury cd from Bear Family Records, 31 tracks, include Carl recordings for Sun, Columbia, Decca and Mercury from 1955-1990. Digipack comes with the 46 pages booklet with nice pictures, complete biography and discography and a tribute from Colin Escott.
Bear Family Records always knew how to deal with rock'n'roll - sound is AMAZING - perfect mix and mastering.
If you don't have a box sets of Carl Perkins, this is the only compilation worth having. This is the real thing from the guy who inspired The Beatles - and he was a damn good guitar player, singer and songwriter.
