Put Your Cat Clothes On
'Blue Suede Shoes' released on Sam Phillips' Sun label in 1955 became a milestone in Rock & Roll history, being the first rockabilly record to make the national Top 10 as well as being the first to make the pop, country and R&B charts and sell over a million copies. Perkins went on to record a string of rock & roll classics which have both influenced and been covered by many of the rock greats, from Elvis Presley to The Beatles. As well as being a highly successful songwriter, Carl Perkins also wrote hits for the likes of Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and The Judds. He was also a phenomenal guitarist whose playing style came to epitomise rock & roll and inspired George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Dave Edmunds and many other aspiring guitarists.
Every track is a classic, including 'Blue Suede Shoes', 'Honey Don't', 'Matchbox' -- and more!
'Put Your Cat Clothes On' has been newly remastered from the original tapes and pressed on audiophile-quality 10-inch vinyl, the first 1,000 of which on limited edition scarlet vinyl. The sleeve notes include definitive career-spanning sleeve notes by Adam Komorowski.
