"Scotty went 24 years without recording. He
couldn't stay away - playing is in his soul. From the last show
with Elvis in 1968, to the Carl Perkins/Scotty
Moore "706 ReUnion" album of 1992, he tried to avoid the
public eye. It couldn't be done - I KNOW! I answered the phone
calls, mail and visitors for 13 of those 24 years. Everyone knows
him, looks up to him and respects his contribution to music. He
tried to stay away, but thank goodness he couldn't." -
Some of this material was done during a busted session at Music City
recorders in 1972. A singer (no one remembers his name), paid for
the sessions and didn't show up. The musicians jammed to fill in
the time, because they had to wait - they'd already been paid.
Some were in Carl Perkins' living room in 1992. Some were
out-takes from the "706 ReUnion" session at Sun Studios in
Memphis. This is work covering 20 years, and it is all great.
In addition to Scotty it features Willie Rainsford and Tracy Nelson with
special guests Carl Perkins, D.J. Fontana and the Jordanaires.
