Let's All Get Dixie Fried

I seem to be going through a Friday rockabilly phase at the moment.
Sadly I don't think that I'll close in terms of  quality and number of posts to Swiss Adam's epic Friday Night is Rockabilly Night series
Still we'll give it a short blast for a few weeks
This week we feature Carl Perkins best known for Blue Suede Shoes and one of Sun's legendary Million Dollar Quartet with Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash

Paul McCartney once said if there were no Carl Perkins , there would be no Beatles but we won't hold that against him
The Beatles never came up with anything as remotely good as Dixie Fried

Carl Perkins - Honey Don't

Carl Perkins - Dixie Fried


  1. Two terrific tunes, but a contentious last sentence!

    1. And one I am prepared to stand by Swede!

    2. Did Mick Jones ever say "with no Carl Perkins there would have been no Clash"?

    3. There was a Mick Jones in Foreigner. There were also two Mick Jones footballers.

  2. McCartney got to play with his hero when Carl appeared on his album Tug of War. Big moment for Paul, I'm sure.

  3. Great pair of tunes. The FNIRN series wore me out in the end.
