Sun Sounds- “Honey Don’t”- Carl Perkins. “Honey Don’t was written by Carl Perkins and produced by Sam Phillips was recorded at Sun Studio in December 1955 and released as the b-side to “Blue Suede Shoes” in January 1956. It is another of the songs of Carl Perkins that was later covered by The Beatles- which is how I first heard it. It was one of the last songs that The Beatles recorded in late 1964 for their Beatles For Sale album. It is a song that The Beatles had long covered in concert- with John Lennon singing- but on the record its Ringo singing. Over the years “Honey Don’t” has been covered by a couple dozen artists.
