Various Artists Great Guitars at Sun Review by Gary Hill I reviewed another of these compilations in the last issue of Music Street Journal. Here we've got a collection of old school music that was released on Sun Records. The focus here is on music with some great guitar work. I have to say that I like this disc better than the previous one (that was about the drums). It's worth the price of admission for a handful of the songs, but nothing here is in the "skip it" category. It's solid stuff and a great introduction to this style of music. Track by Track Review Warren Smith (feat. Al Robson & Roland Jones) - Got Love If You Want It This is a classy rock and roller. The vocals make me think of Elvis Presley in a lot of ways. James Cotton (feat. Pat Hare) - Cotton Crop Blues I dig the old school blues vibe on this cut. This is great stuff. The guitar solo is purely on fire. Johnny Cash (feat. Luther Perkins) - Folsom Prison Blues This is an old-school Johnny Cash classic. I love this number. It's definitely a highlight of the set. Sonny Burgess - We Wanna Boogie The horn adds a lot to this cut. It's a killer cut that works really well. This is a smoking hot old school rock and roller. Billy Riley (feat. Roland James) - Trouble Bound Here we get another that calls to mind Elvis Presley. Warren Smith (feat. Al Hopson) - Miss Froggie Another smoking hot old school rock and roller, this is fun stuff. Little Junior's Blue Flames (feat. Floyd Murphy) - Mystery Train This is a classic song that's been redone by a lot of people over the years. In fact, the next song on this set is a different version of this cut. I think the first version I ever heard was from UFO. Obviously this is different. It's a slow moving old school rock and roller with a lot of blues built into it.
