The Carl Perkins Dance Album, which was released in 1957 on Sun Records as Sun SLP-1225, Dance Album of ... Carl Perkins, is one of the most influential and most important albums in the history of rock and roll. The album was re-released in 1961 as Teen Beat: The Best of Carl Perkins. A British version of the Dance Album was released in the UK as Dance Album/Blue Suede Shoes on London HA-S 2202.

The songs included on this classic album are some of the most influential and most important in rock and roll.

Carl Perkins exploded on the music scene in 1956. He had been signed by Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee in 1954 and released his first single on the Sun subsidiary Flip. On March 19, 1955 he released Movie Magg b/w Turn Around on Flip 501. Flip was meant to cater to the country market. Jerry Lee Lewis later covered Turn Around, which was released on the Sun EP Great Ball of Fire. His second single, Gone Gone Gone b/w Let the Jukebox Keep on Playing, featuring steel guitar, was released on Sun in 1955. A recorded studio performance of Gone Gone Gone by John Lennon was released on The Lost Lennon Tapes in the 1980s. Lennon also based his song I Found Out on Gone Gone Gone. The third single that Carl Perkins released was entitled Blue Suede Shoes.

Blue Suede Shoes was released on January 1, 1956 and became a monster cross-over hit, reaching no.1 on the Billboard country and western charts where it stayed for 3 weeks, no.2 on the pop charts for 4 weeks, and no.2 on the rhythm and blues charts. In Britain, the single reached no.10 on the UK charts. The single quickly became a million seller and was the first gold record at Sun. The single, Sun 234, became one of the biggest hits and best-selling singles of 1956.

Carl Perkins' first Lp, Dance Album, was released on Sun Records in 1957. This is one of the very best rock and roll albums from the mid-to-late '50s rockabilly era. On par with Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Everly Brothers, and other early rock artists at the time. This record plays like a greatest hits collection and his classic material like 'Blue Suede Shoes' have since become rock and roll standards. A must have for any serious rock collection.

Carl Perkins has had very few of his original albums re-produced for modern listeners in any format. I don't understand the other reviewer complaining that it sounds like the tracks were taken from the old records. well, where else are they coming from? not like there was any such thing as digital mastering int he 1950s.

The prize here is the re-release of the album, which is tracks 1-12. The original Blue Suede Shoes, Honey Don't, Matchbox, and Boppin' the Blues are the most known and probably the best. The bonus tracks are chosen well from old singles and whatnot. This isn't exactly deep cuts we're talking about, it's 30 tracks of rockabilly classics. The only complaint to possibly have is that there haven't been more Carl Perkins re-releases.

Buy the vinyl LP (33 and one third rpm 12 inch vinyl record) if you can find one. I have one and the sound is great. One of these ORIGINAL records in excellent condition (record and jacket and liner) is worth $1000 (if you can find a buyer!)Again I'm referring to only the vinyl record when I say the sound is great.

BEWARE! The last four tracks of this record are full of static and completely unlistenable. DO NOT BUY!
