    Luther Perkins was one of the greats, for sure.You’re right, the side men and just the esnemble on stage interacting is a very intersting study. Especially in this kind of early footage. Not so polished as to jsut stand and pose, these are road warriors weary from the road and their relationships with each other plays out before the audience.I love the look of kinescopes by the way. Makes it seem more real than film. And God knows, wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more real than video tape.
