Way Cross Town" – 3:40.

Carl Perkins (April 9, 1932 - January 19 1998) was an American rockabilly singer, guitarist and songwriter, performing early Rockabilly and Rock n Roll along with more traditional Country and Gospel music for decades before his death at age 65. His best known song was "Blue Suede Shoes" in 1956 which was the first single to top three charts listed by Billboard Magazine - popular, country and western, and rhythm and blues.

Pianist Carl Perkins’ playing on Dexter Gordon’s Dexter Blows Hot & Cool set so impressed Dootsie Williams that he also recorded him in a trio setting for the album Introducing Carl Perkins. Perkins had first recorded for Savoy in the late 40s and at the time Williams cut him he was just establishing himself as an important player and composer. Over the next couple of years, as a founder member of the Curtis Counce Group, he helped define the very best of West Coast hard bop. Numbers such as ‘Carl’s Blues’ and ‘Groove Yard’ signalled the arrival of a great composer, but just as he was.
