One of the most highly acclaimed series we've ever done, 'The Sun Singles Collection' shows that someone is finally doing the right thing by the legendary Sun catalogue. This set, the third volume in the series of six, picks up the story in 1958, and continues to 1959. This was the era when Jerry Lee Lewis was at the peak, and Johnny Cash was in the pop and country charts. There was so much more to Sun back then, though, like Gene Simmons, Roy Orbison, Tommy Blake, Ray Smith, Warren Smith, Billy Riley, Johnny Powers, Vernon Taylor, and Sonny Burgess.
Need we say more. This set has all the Sun singles from Sun 279 to Sun 328. Sun in the era of transition. Many of these singles have never been released on CD before! Check out great unknown sides like Alton & Jimmy'sNo More Crying the Blues, or Jerry McGill'sI Wanna MakeSweet Love, as well as classics from Ed Bruce, Jerry Lee Lewis, Sonny Burgess, Billy Riley, etc. Bonus: Hear Jerry Lee Lewis's spoken promo disc for High School Confidential!
