Carl Perkins first 3 recordings discovered from 1951 in Stanton Littlejohn's house in Eastview, TN., near Mississippi border south of Jackson. He recorded them on Stanton's recording console in early 1951. First track is "There's Been a Change in Me", an Eddy Arnold hit early in 1951. It has a fiddle by Charley Cox who's band backs the track. Other 2 songs are "Good Rockin' Tonight" which was a hit for Roy Brown in 1947, and "Drinkin' Wine Spodeeodee", a hit for Sticks McGee in 1949, both of which Carl recorded in latter years. This proves Carl was rockin' long before Elvis Presley or Jerry Lee. He sung these songs at early 1950s club dates in Jackson.

Carl was an absolutely underrated artist - one of the true originals!

I've just listened to clips of the 3 recordings and they are fantastic, particularly "Drinking wine" and "Good Rockin' Tonight" (actually titled "Everybody's Rockin' " on the acetate). The accompanying article is excellent. Carl sounds a bit like Hank Williams and, in fact, the tracks give an idea of how Hank might have sounded if he'd recorded r 'n 'b. Interesting in the light of those persistent rumours that before he died he'd been talking about recording just such material. This is incredibly exciting for long term fans of Carl. I just hope they get released soon.
