An excellent read into the background of the now famous recording session by the founding members of popular music in the 1950s.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Much New Info (aka, Carl Perkins was NOT from Jackson, MS) 4 July 2014
By Mark S. Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book seems to be an attempt to cash-in on the current attention generated by the musical of the same name and subject. The author brings little new information regarding this musically historic "reunion", nor the individuals who participated. I've never read a history related non-fiction book that didn't include footnotes, endnotes, a reference page, or a bibliography; this book has none (there is also no index). What the author does supply is a list of Further Reading that has nine titles, which includes biographies and autobiographies - most of which any fan of this period would have previously read. It's my opinion the author may have heavily relied on these sources for this book, but without proper citing, we'll not know.

What soured me on this book was the account of Carl Perkins. I lived in Mr. Perkins' hometown for several years where I got to meet him and his family - even worked with one of his sons and grand-daughters. Being a fan of his music, as well as the person, I read the account of Mr. Perkins with a watchful eye. To my dismay, the author commits an amateur mistake when it comes to Mr. Perkins' story: the author never mentions Mr. Perkins' home town as Jackson, TN, but Jackson, MS (p. 28). Furthermore, he specifically identifies a local venue, the Cotton Boll, as being in Jackson, MS (p. 35). It was NOT in Jackson, MS, it was south of Jackson, TN on state hi-way 45 - I've been there (it's since been torn down)! Another joint called the Sand Ditch, is said to be in Jackson (p. 36), but no state is given (it was located on the west side of Jackson, TN).

Another point that may irk Perkins' fans is the way one of Carl's childhood mentors is presented. Those who know the story will know that Uncle John Westbrook was more than ". . . an older man called John who played passionate blues and gospel songs on a battered old acoustic guitar when the day's work was finished (p. 32)."

This book could be a good read for those who not familiar with the participants and/or the night these music pioneers came together. Those who are more familiar with the stories will find little new information.
