Sun Records Compilation
Recordings from Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Roy Orbison will be among those featured on a 44-song, two-disc set chronicling the history of Sun Records. Due Aug. 6 from BMG Heritage, "Sun Records 50th Anniversary," which will retail for $21.98, will contain such legendary tracks as Presley's "Mystery Train," Perkins' "Blue Suede Shoes," and Sonny Burgess' "Red Headed Woman."
The Memphis label, launched by producer Sam Phillips after he recorded such artists as B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, and Jakie Brenston for blues label Chess Records, melded R&B and country to pave the way for rock'n'roll's mainstream acceptance. While a full tracklist was not available at deadline, the set begins with Sun' first release, "Driving Slow" from sax player Johnny London, and highlights some early '50s recordings such as Junior Parker's "Feelin' Good," the Prisionaires' "Just Walking in the Rain," and Jimmy & Walter's "Easy." A lesser-known take on "Mystery Train" from Parker, who wrote the song, is also featured.
"Anniversary" will come with a booklet that contains track-by-track commentary and a label history penned by Colin Escott. Additional artists featured on the album include James Cotton, Jack Earl, Ray Harris and Tommy Blake. Warren Smith's "Red Cadillac and a Black Mustache" and an alternate take of Little Milton's "Looking for My Baby" are also represented.
