Synopsis by Mark Deming
Carl Perkins was one of the first guitar heroes of the rockabilly revolution of the 1950s, mixing country & western with R&B and creating such classic hits as "Blue Suede Shoes," "Honey Don't," "Boppin' the Blues," and many more. Carl Perkins and Friends: Blue Suede Shoes - A Rockabilly Session preserves a special concert staged for television in which Perkins sits in with a handful of friends and admirers, including George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, Rosanne Cash, and Slim Jim Phantom of the Stray Cats. Perkins' longtime friends Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, and Jerry Lee Lewis also make guest appearances.
