Carl Lee Perkins signs a reproduction of sheet music for the song, "Boppin' The Blues".
Reproduction of Sheet Music Cover signed: "Carl Lee Perkins". B/w with blue hue, 8½x11. Reproduction of the cover for sheet music for the song, "Boppin' The Blues", words and music by Carl Lee Perkins and Howard "Curley" Griffin". "Boppin' The Blues", a country hit and minor pop hit, was later the title of Perkins' 1982 album. Singer/songwriter Carl Perkins (1932-1998) had a No. 1 hit with "Blue Suede Shoes", the first song to top the rhythm and blues, country and pop charts at the same time, 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, who was nicknamed the "Godfather of Country Music", continued to record and write songs for other stars, including Johnny Cash (with whom he toured as a guitarist from 1964-1975), 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. Perkins dropped his middle name, Lee, early in his career to avoid being confused with Jerry Lee Lewis. Slightly creased. Defects from original cover, including creases and stains, have reproduced on this copy. Overall, fine condition.
