Carl Perkins unreleased earliest recordings.

Postby Rocky » Tue Feb 13, 2018 4:57 pm

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.

Does anyone here know for certain what song Carl Perkins sang in the obscure 1959 Philippine movie 'Hawaiian Boy'? Most sources (including Wikipedia) list 'Blue Suede Shoes', but others (including the usually reliable Paul MacPhail) insist it is 'Where The Rio De Rosa Flows' instead. Also, what did Roy Hamilton sing in the movie?

Peter, I actually seen the movie HAWAIIAN BOY" many years ago on TV. It was filmed by Peoples Pictures (an independent), not in Hawaii but in Los Angeles, CA. Carl had a small part as a bartender/singer in a club. A lot of the movie was filmed in the Philippines. Carl's part was filmed at U/A Studio, L.A. He performed four songs in the movie; his recent ballad "Y-O-U", and three from his recent album with "Where the Rio De Rosa Flows", "That's Alright, Mama", and "Whole Lotta Shaking". The movie was only shown in limited release in theatres in 1959. He was not backed by his own band at the filming in May, 1959. At the same time he made the movie he taped two "Town Hall Party" TV shows in Hollywood, once again without his own band. Booker Lucky Moeller flew to Hollywood with him. I don't remember other songs in the film.

Thanks Paul, great info.

Can you remember (roughly) the last time it was broadcast on TV?

I believe it was the TCM channel (Turner Classic Movies) back in late 1970s or early 80s. They have no commercials and show old movies from the 30s to the 70s straight through all 24 hours a day. They recently showed "Jamboree" with Perkins, Lewis, Domino, etc.

Thank you Paul.

I've done more research on Roy Hamilton; apparently he performed 3 songs in the film, with 'Unchained Melody' and 'You'll Never Walk Alone' probably being 2 of them.
