Sun Records: 50 Golden Years - A Commemorative Collection Fab-U-Lus FBUBX002 Sam Phillips

“Has a finer collection of prime Sun goodies ever appeared in one package before? Stuart Colman offers a track-by-track analysis in the accompanying 71-page booklet that's stuffed to the gills with recording information, personnel listings and over 50 photographs. Further images adorn each of the individual pages that house the discs themselves. The overall packaging - a deluxe photo album-style box - is highly original and was the brainchild of project co-ordinator Sam Szczepanski. Go, Cat, go!”

“Musicologists can debate the date of birth of rock'n'roll, but 1952, when Sam Phillips started the Sun label, is as good a place to begin as any. Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison are all here alongside lesser lights, spread over eight CDs with 198 tracks from a decade when Sun was indisputably the best label in the world. Guaranteed good rockin', tonight and ever more.”

“I am at a loss for words to thank you, Stuart and all that contributed to this beautiful and extraordinary work you have done for the 50th tribute you have given to the world of SUN and me (slightly older). Please accept my heartfelt thanks for this unusual presentation of 'our' SUN.”
