Carl Perkins (Rockabilly): Whole Lotta Shakin'

Album Notes

Whole Lotta Shakin' is a bit of an odd LP, a collection of rock & roll covers that contains no Perkins originals or hits. Because Perkins was a first-class rock & roller, this is hardly a bad album -- he sings Jerry Lee, Little Richard, and Elvis songs with gusto -- but many of these sessions are augmented with a wailing saxophone that winds up cluttering the arrangements, elbowing out Carl's lean lead lines and making this a less raucous party than it should have been. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
