Critics and fans were unanimous: Volume One of this series (BCD 15801) was an eye-opener and a revelation in the way it told the Sun Records story release-by-release. Here's the heart of Sun's golden era. Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Warren Smith, and Carl Perkins were the label's stars. It was a revolutionary period, and these are the recordings that shaped modern rock 'n' roll. Essential!
Here we pick up the story, and collectors need only to know that this includes Sun 229 through 278. Here are the great original versions of Blue Suede Shoes, Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On, Oooby Dooby, I WalkThe Line, Flying Saucer Rock 'n' Roll etc., as well as classic rockabilly and R&B by Sun's great unknowns. Here too is the first issue of the previously unissued Sun 252 by Kenny Parchman. Incredible photos round out the set.
