4.0 out of 5 stars Carl Perkins - Go Cat Go January 26, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is my new favorite CD. Track 4, Distance Makes No Difference With Love, sung with George Harrison's perfect harmony and his excellent slide guitar is the reason I purchased this CD. The songs on this recording are fun, fast and they really get you moving. You can feel that everyone involved was having a great time playing with Carl. Other performers on this CD are: Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Johnny Cash, Bono, Willie Nelson, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, John Fogerty and Paul Simon. The louder you play this CD the better. Enjoy! (Remember George Harrison).

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless! A romp through music history July 2, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Highly recommended; very enjoyable; great for sharing. I'm not crazy about rockabilly or country music, but when the Beatles (especially George Harrison) sang their praises (literally) about Carl Perkins' influence on their music, it made me open my musical ears. I found this while browsing at the now closed CD Warehouse. My favorites are #5 - Give Me Back My Job (with Perkins, Bono, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Tom Petty) from 1996-- but still relevant today. A fun song is #3 Rockabilly Music (with Paul Simon) - a look at what "touring" was like back in the 50s and 60s. It was hard work -- sometimes lousy food and worse hotel rooms and you might not get paid at all; no wonder the goal was to make that hit record and get off the road -- or get your own luxury tour bus! George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr each got to sing with their musical hero. Man, who could ask for anything more? Perkins could have been as famous as Elvis, but a bad auto accident and the release of Elvis' version of Perkins' composition Blue Suede Shoes before his record relegated Perkins to the musical sideline. But look at what he received instead: a stable, long-lasting family life, the respect and friendship of other musicians who delighted in his company and his work, and audiences who enjoyed having him around!

4.0 out of 5 stars Perkins & Friends August 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a highly underrated and very reasonably priced collection. For any Perkins fan, it's a must have. The variety of duets is highly entertaining. Paul Simon, all of the Beatles (separately), Tom Petty, along with his buddies Willie Nelson & Johnny Cash plus more. Grab it while you can...it's a hidden treasure. Also highly recommended is the Sun compilation "Good Rockin' Tonight" The Legacy of Sun Records.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a Great CD May 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great collaboration of artistes. I didn't know much of Carl Perkins music, so this was my introduction. I had a copy and liked it so much I had to replace it. His work with the other artists (John Fogerty, Paul Simon, Ringo, Bono, Tom Pety, Paul McCartney. Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, George Harrison) is wonderful. One song (Give Me Back My Job) has Willie, Bono, Johnny, & Tom on it, and it works well.

Love this CD

4.0 out of 5 stars I only miss one thing... December 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Simply great music. Mr. CP with both dead and living friends goes back to what it's all about - the joy of the music! All the tracks are great and the reason for the 4 stars instead of five is simply that my CD lacks the last number (17) with John Lennon. If the lacking number is as good as the 16 tracks that I've got this is a clear 5-star quality album. It can be heard again and again - and still You will find new joys in Your listening. If You enjoy such stars and bands as Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, George Harrison, Paul Mccartney, Ringo Starr and Paul Simon You must have this cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perkins & Friends August 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was plesantly surprised by this CD. This is a combination of old songs re-recorded with MANY special guest stars and new songs still with guest stars. The other reviews talk about the guests alot, so I'll just add that they all pay homage to this great rock-a-billy artist. Three cuts are from outside recordings (both Blue Suede Shoes versions and Honey Don't) but the rest are done with Carl in the studio, and Carl is the star of this show. You can hear the musicians enjoying themselves on every cut. A fine album to add to your collection, especially if you're familiar with Mr. Perkin's work. Recommended.
