There's a reason for that. Sam Phillips rushed the album out after Perkins left Sun for Columbia inwhich was two years after "Blue Suede Shoes" was a hit, so Perkins not only didn't have a big single in the charts -- "Pink Pedal Pushers," his last for Sun, stalled at 91 on the pop charts Glad All Over - Carl Perkins - Dance Album Of Carl Perkins but the label released it more as a cash-in than anything, and it never made much of an impact on the charts.
That's not bad for a greatest-hits album, but Dance Album is a hits album only in retrospect, after those tunes became standards. Combined, these tracks provided some of the toughest, rawest rockabilly, powered by Perkins ' dynamic, gutsy guitar and Breaks My Back - Jerry Cantrell - Boggy Depot voice.
Much of the rest of the record cruises by at the same speed -- the two-step tribute "Tennessee," the bopping "Your True Love," the speedy rockabilly blues cover "Right String, Wrong Yo Yo" -- slowing down for the pure Tokyo - Shoala - Tokyo of "Sure to Fall" and a version of the Platters ' "Only You" that turns it down-home.
These may be the only two changes of pace, either in tempo or in style, but they give the album both range and a little bit of breathing room.
