The Return Of Friday Night is Rockabilly Night 55

Johnny Cash reckoned Carl Perkins was the King of rockabilly and who are we to disagree with the Man In Black. In this song, a demo recorded for Sun Records, Carl sings of an item of clothing I do not own. And am unlikely too, despite their availability online (see below).Pink Pedal Pushers


The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 25

Tonight’s Rockabilly comes from one of the originators- Carl Perkins, who the Japanese couple in Mystery Train argued about for most of the film, may have been better than Elvis. Honey Don’t was the B-side to Blue Suede Shoes, released in January 1956 and is just as groundbreaking as Joey Beltram’s Energy Flash thirty four years later. But with fewer drug references.

It’s Friday night and it’s that time again, for our weekly rockabilly rave-up. Carl Perkins (he was there before Elvis music fans) invites you to a party, and for this bank holiday weekend, including our pre-40th trip to Edinburgh, I think we should all get Dixie Fried. Have a great weekend.
