LINER NOTES
Give Me Back My Job: Performed by Carl Perkins, Bono, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Tom Petty.  Produced by Bob Johnston, Andrew Monroe and Don Robert Johnston.  Executive Producer: Jim McCullough.
OTHER NOTES
This album was part tribute and part recording for Carl Perkins.  He invited a lot of guests to help him with the songs on this album.  Bono was invited along to perform on the song "Give Me Back My Job" which was quite the collection of musical talents joined together.  The album turned out to be Carl Perkins' final album.

The album was initially released by Dinosaur Records with the yellow cover most are familiar with.  A small rerelease was done in 1999 by WCMC / ArtistOne.com which featured different artwork.
