Interview: Carl Perkins, October 31, 1978 at the Bijou Café, Philadelphia, Pa.

Peter Stone Brown, unpublished, 31 October 1978

THIS INTERVIEW took place backstage at the Bijou Café right before Carl Perkins was to do his first show in Philadelphia in years with a band that included two of his sons.  It was a rare occasion and I don't believe he ever returned.  At the time he had a new album out that pretty much ended up going nowhere and I'm not sure if the album he talks about at the end of the interview ever was released.
