AllMusic Review by

Carl Perkins' entry into the LIVE AT GILLEY'S series (which also features releases by rock & roll legends like Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, and others) shows that this influential rocker still had the ability to whip up some on-stage magic in the early-'80s, when this show was recorded. Perkins runs through a number of originals, including his most famous song, "Blues Suede Shoes," as well as "Matchbox," "Honey Don't," and a ten-song medley of covers that features such standards as "Roll Over Beethoven," "Maybelline," "Long Tall Sally," "Tutti Frutti," "Hound Dog," and others. LIVE AT GILLEY'S is a first-rate document of the Perkins concert magic.
