Ol' Blue Suede's Back

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Carl Perkins' 1978 album Ol' Blue Suede's Back was originally planned to be a concept album, narrated track by track by Perkins himself.

Produced by the legendary Felton Jarvis, the band included David Briggs, Weldon Myrick, Mike Leech, the Jordanaires, and others. Musically, this is as inspired as Perkins ever got.
