Product Description:

DANCE ALBUM is one of the most important LPs in rock & roll history, and certainly among the top five rockabilly albums, as it is THE definitive recorded statement from rockabilly trailblazer Carl Perkins. It was originally released on Sun in 1958, just after Perkins mirrored Elvis Presley's path by leaving Sun for a major label, and consists of tracks Perkins recorded for Sun between '55 and '57 (his unquestionable peak). The breathless intensity of both the hits ("Blue Suede Shoes," "Boppin' the Blues," et al) and the lesser-known songs is as fervid and infectious as Elvis's own Sun sides.
Like Elvis and the other early rockabilly artists, Perkins blended country, blues, and R&B for a sparkling sound full of energy, lust, and pure jubilation. Perkins's roots in country were strong; "Sure to Fall" could be a lost Ernest Tubb cut, and on "Tennessee," Perkins namechecks Tubb, Red Foley, and even Eddy Arnold. The five bonus cuts appended to this seminal album are pure breakneck rockabilly, though; there's even a furious Jerry Lee Lewis piano solo on "Put Your Cat Clothes On." DANCE ALBUM is a timeless, vital piece of American musical history.
