6-CD Box (LP format) with 148-page hardcover book, 208 tracks, total playing time approx. Sun Records at 60 , Bear Family at 38.Between 1950 and 1960, Sun Records founder Sam Phillips discovered and produced B. King, Howlin' Wolf, Ike Turner, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich , and Roy Orbison - artists who changed the way popular music was made. With a staff of no more than one or two people, he did this from a small storefront studio in Memphis, Tennessee.
Others who made their first recordings at Sun include Rufus Thomas, Bobby Bland, Junior Parker, Little Milton, Conway Twitty, Charley Pride , and many more! In 1952, after producing one of the biggest pre-rock'n' roll hits, Jackie Brenston's'Rocket 88', Sam Phillips launched Sun Records with one local release, and then folded the label for a year.
In 1953, he re-launched Sun, scored major hits with R&B, country, and rock'n' roll artists, and created an identifiable Sun Sound along the way. He continued to release singles on Sun until 1968. Now, in conjunction with Sun's sixtieth anniversary, Bear Family is releasing three genre-defining box sets The Sun Country Box is the first. Bear Family issued the original'Sun Country Years' in 1986, and now it's back. Few knew it, but Sam Phillips' original recordings after he started his studio were country - not blues.Now the story of Phillips' involvement in country music from 1950 until 1959 is told in full. There's Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis , and Carl Perkins , of course, but the real story lies in artists like Ernie Chaffin, Slim Rhodes, Charlie Feathers, Warren Smith , and many others who didn't make it, but made fabulously underrated music. Newly restored audio, newly discovered recordings, and newly unearthed photos make this an essential companion to the Blues box.
So don't believe that the story of Sun Records has been told until you hear a priceless audio fragment that might be Sun no. 176 the only Sun record that has never been heard, or seen the scrap of paper where Sam Phillips figured out his tiny income for 1952, or hear afro-American gay nightclub singer Rudi Richardson sing rock'n' roll!
