Thanks. Hadn't heard the Larry Williams version of Slow Down.

I got interested in Carl Perkins after becoming a fan of Elvis back in the 70s.  Listening to his Sun recordings led me to explore Perkins. I bought a 45 of Matchbox at an old record store. Also a 45 of Blue Suede Shoes b/w Honey Don't. Those are some great records.
just spent an enjoyable time listening to these records along with Elvis' Mystery Train (one of my all time favorites).

Thanks again!  Smiley

You're welcome, E. Carl Perkins has a fantastic catalogue of songs, so many of them regarded as classics and rightly so.

A radio station has temporarily gone to a "Beach Music" format.
I was introduced to Beach Music, also known as Carolina Beach Music, when I lived in North Carolina in the early 1980s. Beach Music is popular primarily in North and South Carolina, and also in the coastal areas of Virginia, Maryland, and perhaps Pennsylvania. Basically, what is known as the US Middle Atlantic States.
Beach Music is r and b that can be adaptable to the dance known as the Shag.
A number of regional groups are known for this type of music, such as The Tams, The Tymes, and The Chairmen of the Board.  Also other groups/singers such as The Drifters, Gene Chandler, have songs that fit the mold.
Wonderful music for a warm summer's night...

One of the most frequently played when I was living there, and one I heard yesterday, is by The Tams - "Be Young, Be Foolish, but Be Happy".

Another I heard a lot is by The Tymes - "Ms Grace". Just found out that this was a big hit in the UK in the mid-70s.

This seems as good a place as any to post this. There's plenty of talk about the falsetto prowess of Brian and Frankie V. One name that is invariably left out of the discussion is that of Lou Christie. His "Wild Life's In Season", produced by Jack Nitzsche, is a must-hear (regrettably no longer on YouTube). "Trapeze" is another winner:
