Music Monday: Two Versions of “Sure to Fall”


Hi, everyone.  I’m still doing a lot of research and reading on the early Memphis music business.  One of the people I’m studying is the late Carl Perkins.  His popularity was eclipsed by Elvis Presley … even when it came to Perkins’ own “Blue Suede Shoes!”  People thought Perkins was covering Presley instead of the other way around.

A dejected Perkins eventually traveled to England for a show … where he found that he was greatly revered by the young musicians there.  In particular, he recalled George Harrison approaching him and asking how he’d played a particular section of “Matchbox” … and then telling his bandmates that they’d been doing it wrong.

Here are Carl Perkins and the Silver Beatles (as they were then calling themselves), each doing “Sure to Fall.”
