Album artwork for Blue Suede Shoes by Carl Perkins and Friends

Written in October 1955 & released in January 1956, ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ was an instant classic earning a place in the history books when it became the first million-seller to crossover from the Country chart to the Pop & R&B listings. Swiftly covered by Elvis Presley & later The Beatles, the song remains a Rock’n’Roll anthem. Fitting then that Carl Perkins, the man who wrote & first performed ‘Blue Suede Shoes’, should be accorded a television special to celebrate its 30th anniversary. On 21st October 1985 at London’s Limehouse Studios a superstar cast of friends & fans joined Carl Perkins to record a TV special celebrating his career & the classic songs that he had recorded during it.

Perkins was joined on stage by George Harrison & Eric Clapton along with other stars including Dave Edmunds, Slim Jim Phantom & Lee (Stray Cats) Rocker plus Earl Slick & singer Rosanne Cash, daughter of the legendary Johnny Cash.
