    Roy Orbison/ Carl Perkins - Pair of Two Rare Early LPs (Sun Records, 1961). A wonderful pair of early LPs from two very innovative forces in Rock & Roll. First is a rare white-label promo copy of Roy Orbison's debut album At the Rock House (SLP 1260, 1961). Released hurriedly by Sun Records after Orbison had moved to Monument Records, this album - comprised of his earlier minor hit singles - was issued to capitalize on Orbison's newfound stardom. Next is Teen Beat (SLP 1225), a fantastic 1961 reissue of Carl Perkins' 1957 debut album. Featuring Carl Perkins' biggest hits, including the ever-iconic "Blue Suede Shoes," Teen Beat is essential Perkins, and essential Sun Records. Condition: At the Rock House - VG-EX 6 (sleeve, with toning and tape along bottom/ MT 9 (disc); Teen Beat - VG 5 (sleeve, with split along bottom, covered with tape)/ VG 7.5 (disc).
