Cheap Snails 
Perrett returned to solo performances and found enthusiasm for his original instrumental songs that are anecdotes of travel experiences and for his renditions of blues tunes with hard driving fingerstyle on the 12-string, Dobro (slide) and standard guitars. He was encouraged to produce his first recording, "Cheap Snails", which was released on compact disc in 1995. His success in getting the CD into over one hundred radio stations far exceeded his initial intention of producing a record to sale at shows. To support the album, he played a circuit of dozens of venues on the east coast including live shows on radio and television.
