Jive After Five 45 by Carl Perkins

Jive After Five  Carl Perkins

Carl Perkins, 1932-1998, had one big hit during his career but “Blue Suede Shoes” was one of the most inflential songs in rock and roll history. He was elected to The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1987 and would continue to perform until just before his death from throat cancer.

Despite his lack of commercial success, he issued a number of excellent singles. “Jive After Five” was representative of his material as he was was a rockabilly artist and it was a rocking performance. Perkins was a first-rate guitarist and most of his material was up-tempo and reflected that expertise.

“Jive After Five” was the B side to “Pink Pedal Pushers,” which spent one week on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Chart at number 91.

Any compilation album by Perkins is well-worth the investment.
