Awesome Rockabilly Doc.
7 September 2002 | by (Florida, United States) – See all my reviews

Blue Suede Shoes is an awesome rockabilly film. I found it neat to see teddy boys getting down with the greasers n all. ALL the music was great. Awesome film. I saw the doc. on Bravo, but have yet to find the thing on video to purchase (in US format). I enjoyed the interviews as well as the music. Great stuff.
