@Rockabilly Hall of Fame : While some ill-informed revisionist writers of rock history would like to dismiss Carl Perkins as a rockabilly artist who became a one hit wonder at the dawn of rock & roll’s early years, a deeper look at his music and career reveals much more.

@allmusic : And within the framework of the best of his music is a strong sense of family and roots, all of which trace straight back to his humble beginnings.

@last.fm : Perkins had a long association with musical collaborator Johnny Cash, and was a an influence on numerous artists including The Beatles, and the Rolling Stones.
