Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.


• Jack Turner recordings available here.
• Update on Les Randall acetate.
• Thanks to Bob more info on Bill Harris.

Carl Perkins set

June Carter, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins

Here are four songs by Carl Perkins. I have no accurate info on the recording date, but they surely come from the 1970s or 1980s. Apart from "Rock Island Line", all songs are covers of great Rock & Roll songs. I have some other recordings from that same session, including "Jailhouse Rock", "All Shook Up", "Matchbox" (covering himself!) and others. Have fun with 'em.


track list:
1. I'm Walking
2. Maybellene
3. Rock Island Line
4. Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On

These tracks were issued originally on the 1978 "Ol' Blue Suede's Back" Jet Records album and later reissued on CD (without dialogues) on the double set "Jet Propelled - The 78 Comeback"
