The Sun Records Rock N Roll Collection
CELEBRATING SUN RECORDS - THE LABEL WHERE ROCK 'N' ROLL WAS BORN !
The Rock 'n' Roll Collection features 40-songs from the most important record label in the history of music, with every one newly remastered from the original Sun Records master tapes. A comprehensive introduction to some of the most iconic and influential music ever recorded.
Following its sell-out success as a limited-edition orange vinyl double LP exclusive to UK retailer Sainsbury's, Charly Records have bowed to demand and repressed 'The Sun Records Rock 'n' Roll Collection' on 180-gram audiophile black vinyl and made it available to all UK and European retailers.
Elvis Presley introduced the rockabilly sound to the world in 1954 with the recordings he made at Sun Records. These epitomised the famous "Sun sound" and set the scene for the rock 'n' roll explosion to follow. This raw and exciting new sound was a remarkable fusion of white country music and black R&B and quickly found an eager audience with the youth of the day. Presley's extraordinary success at Sun Records led to the tiny Memphis-based label becoming a magnet for aspiring rockabilly singers from all over America's South. Despite a relatively short heyday, that "Sun sound" has endured the test of time and remains as popular as ever with listeners of all age groups.
As well as featuring Elvis and such other household names as Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Charlie Rich and Roy Orbison, the gatefold-sleeved double-album also includes significant contributions from the label's other important artists such as: Billy Lee Riley, Sonny Burgess, The Miller Sisters, Warren Smith, Malcolm Yelvington, Jimmy Wages, and Earl Hooker.
Includes such all-time rock 'n' roll classics as: Mystery Train, That's All Right, Blue Suede Shoes, Great Balls Of Fire, I Walk The Line, Yakety Yak, Rock Island Line, Good Rockin' Tonight, Red Hot, Ooby Dooby, Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On and many more !
