Recording information by LarryLGOLD +3

Blue Suede Shoes is a rock-and-roll standard written and first recorded by Carl Perkins in 1955. It is considered one of the first rockabilly records, incorporating elements of blues, country and pop music of the time.
When Perkins played a dance on December 4, 1955, he noticed a couple dancing near the stage. Between songs, he heard a stern, forceful voice say, "Uh-uh, don't step on my suedes!" He looked down and noted that the boy was wearing blue suede shoes and one had a scuff mark. "Good gracious, a pretty little thing like that and all he can think about is his blue suede shoes", thought Perkins.
According to Perkins, "On December 17, 1955, I wrote 'Blue Suede Shoes'. I recorded it on December 19", for Sun Records.

And what era of music is my favorite ??? … Well, you can't beat the 60's !!!! … Look at all the great groups and singers that came out of that era … They are still playing, and the music is still and sung today and everyone knows the lyrics
The list is to long but here are a few of my favorites: BeeGees, Simon & Garfunkel, The Doors, Bob Dylan, The Byrds, The Monkees, Jefferson Airplane, Three Dog Night, Pink Floyd, The Yardbirds, The Beach Boys, The Mommas & The Papas, Tommy James & the Shondells, Paul Revere & the Raiders, The Grassroots, The Loving Spoonful, Herman & The Hermits, The Association, Crosby, Stills, & Nash, The Who, and The Rolling stones to name a few
