Sam Phillips’ legendary Sun Records is famous for guitar-toting stars like Elvis, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins. But dazzling string work at Sun was not limited to records by these three famous artists. This is a CD for musicians as well as record collectors. We’ve saved you the trouble of going through hundreds of original sources to find the best of the best. It’s all here, in one place, culled from hundreds of hours of listening. Whether you want to bask in it or learn from it, this truly is the definitive collection of Great Guitars at Sun.
‘Great Guitars at Sun’ includes some breath-taking playing: from legends like Scotty Moore to stylists like Luther Perkins. Some, like Carl Perkins, Little Milton and Roy Orbison, were far better known as singers. Other guitarists we selected - men like Eddie Bush and Pat Hare and Roland Janes - worked in near obscurity, but their brilliant playing illuminated recordings by better known vocalists. Sam Phillips, the founder and guiding hand of Sun Records, knew how to listen and he knew how important the musicians were.
