Sun Records Collection
Label: UNION SQUARE/CONVEYOR
2011 two CD collection from the vaults of the legendary Sun Records label. In 1950, Sam Phillips started his Memphis Recording Service at 706 Union Avenue. In the following dozen or so years, Phillips unearthed and recorded an unprecedented array of talent. Pioneering electric bluesmen were the first to arrive - Howlin' Wolf and Little Junior Parker. Then a quietly spoken electrical company employee, one Elvis Presley, walked in and helped Sam change the face of the 20th century by inventing Rock 'n' Roll. The King was followed through the door by Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison and Charlie Rich to make Sun one of the greatest record labels ever. Metro Select.
