Sun Records: 25 Rare Blues Classics

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Campbell
Memphis-based Sun Records revolved around the rockabilly of Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis. But when Sun founder Sam Phillips started the label in the early '50s, his intention was to release Southern blues. This compilation focuses on the early blues greats who recorded for the label, including Little Milton, Little Junior Parker, Honeyboy Edwards, Frank Frost, Rosco Gordon, Joe Hill Louis, Walter Horton, Rufus Thomas, Billy "The Kid" Emerson, and Earl Hooker. This material is essential and should be part of any serious blues collection.
