Description

Sun Country Box / Various on CD

Limited six CD box set including 148 page booklet. Between 1950 and 1960, sun records founder Sam Phillips discovered and produced B.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, 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. It's all here! newly restored audio, newly discovered recordings, and newly unearthed photos make this an essential purchase.
