AllMusic Review by

The running time is only 31 minutes, one key song ("Honey Don't") is listed incorrectly on the jewel box, and there's no indication of where or when (guess: the 1980s) the performances date from -- but this is still one great live CD by Carl Perkins. The sound is generally good (though the fidelity and microphone placement vary widely from song to song), and the performance is first-rate. Songs include "Blue Suede Shoes," "Dixie Fried," "Boppin' the Blues," "High Heel Sneakers," and "Matchbox." This is roughly the audio equivalent to Perkins' outstanding Blue Suede Shoes concert video, only more intense.
