Sun Hillbilly

Sam Phillips started his Sun Records label in 1952 and recorded seemingly all comers in the Memphis area, tracking gospel, blues, country, boogie, and Western swing performers and as luck would have it, a fair amount of what were termed "hillbilly" artists, who recorded all sorts of variations on the above genres.

Rockabilly, and in turn that next logical step, rock & roll, didn't come out of nowhere, and the proof is here.
