CARL LEE PERKINS
78 rpm record of his classic hit "Blue Suede Shoes," signed on the Sun label
Record signed: "Thanks/Carl Perkins/89". His hit record "Blue Suede Shoes", 78 rpm recording, signed on the Sun label. Singer/songwriter Carl Perkins (1932-1998) had a No. 1 hit with "Blue Suede Shoes" in 1956. In a tragic twist of fate, Carl and his brother were seriously injured in an auto accident while on their way to appear on television shows in New York City (The Perry Como Show on Saturday night and The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday evening). While in traction, Perkins watched Elvis Presley perform his hit on Sullivan's variety show. While his own career never regained its momentum, Perkins continued to record and write songs for other stars, including Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and the Beatles, and his guitar style was highly influential. Before his death from throat cancer, he saw himself elevated to "living legend" status and elected to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. By the late 1950s, 45 rpm (revolutions per minute) recordings were fast replacing the 78 rpm disc offered here, but Sun records was still recording Perkins and Presley in both formats because many fans could not yet afford to replace their record players. Soon only children's records would be issued in the old format, making Perkins' hit here even more of a collector's item. Signature light but legible. 3½ inch crack at top to center. Multiple scratches. Otherwise, fine condition.
