Various - SUN Records: Sun Country Box 1950-1959 (6-CD Box)

Video von Various - SUN Records - Sun Country Box 1950-1959 (6-CD Box)

6-CD Box (LP format) with 148-page hardcover book, 208 tracks, total playing time approx. 8 hours 50 minutes.
  • Sun Records at 60, Bear Family at 38
  • Between 1950 and 1960, Sun Records founder Sam Phillips discovered and produced B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, Ike Turner, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich, and Roy Orbison - artists who changed the way popular music was made.
  • With a staff of no more than one or two people, he did this from a small storefront studio in Memphis, Tennessee.
  • Others who made their first recordings at Sun include Rufus Thomas, Bobby Bland, Junior Parker, Little Milton, Conway Twitty, Charley Pride, and many more!
  • In 1952, after producing one of the biggest pre-rock 'n' roll hits, Jackie Brenston's 'Rocket 88', Sam Phillips launched Sun Records with one local release, and then folded the label for a year.
  • In 1953, he re-launched Sun, scored major hits with R&B, country, and rock 'n' roll artists, and created an identifiable Sun Sound along the way.
  • He continued to release singles on Sun until 1968.
Now, in conjunction with Sun's sixtieth anniversary, Bear Family is releasing three genre-defining box sets
The Sun Country Box is the first. Bear Family issued the original 'Sun Country Years' in 1986, and now it's back. Few knew it, but Sam Phillips' original recordings after he started his studio were country - not blues. Now the story of Phillips' involvement in country music from 1950 until 1959 is told in full. There's Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins, of course, but the real story lies in artists like Ernie Chaffin, Slim Rhodes, Charlie Feathers, Warren Smith, and many others who didn't make it, but made fabulously underrated music. It's all here! Newly restored audio, newly discovered recordings, and newly unearthed photos make this an essential companion to the Blues box.

So don't believe that the story of Sun Records has been told until you hear a priceless audio fragment that might be Sun no.176 the only Sun record that has never been heard, or seen the scrap of paper where Sam Phillips figured out his tiny income for 1952, or hear afro-American gay nightclub singer Rudi Richardson sing rock 'n' roll! This is the story of the most lauded record label of all time told as only Bear Family can tell it!

This is the story of ten years that changed the world of popular culture!

Umfangreiche Country-Werkschau des legendären Labels.
Rolling Stone 8/2013 Franz Schöler

 
From: Redecker 2014-03-13 14:19:24

As ever with Bear Family the sound and presentation are faultless and the fardback book that accompanies the set, a volume worth having on ist own.
Maverick July/August 2013 John Atkins

 
From: Redecker 2014-03-13 14:19:08

I'm not always overly keen on re-issues but when it comes to Bear Family Records there's always that little extra that is hard to find elsewhere.
Country Music People July 2013 Roland Purdy

 
From: Redecker 2014-03-13 14:18:52

Die Musik von SUN wird auf einem Bauernhof in Holse-Oldendorf bei Bremen gepflegt.

From: Redecker 2014-03-13 14:18:37

Diese prachtvolle Sechs-CD-Box rollt den Hillbilly-Katalog von Sam Phillips' Label von hinten auf und reicht dabei weit über Countrymusik hinaus.
Musikexpress 7/13 Frank Sawatzki

 
From: Redecker 2014-03-13 14:18:22

Diese neue Veröffentlichung besticht durch ein Hardcoverbuch im LP-Format mit 148 Seiten und vielen bisher nicht veröffentlichten Fotos und neueren und besseren Informationen als die die alte LP-Box noch liefern konnte. Klasse!
R & R Musikmagazin 3/2013 H.G. Hartig

 
From: Redecker 2014-03-13 14:18:05

This 6CD compilation is a much improved, brilliantly annotated revamp of the 1986 vinyl version and certainly adds to Bear Family's envious reputation.
Mojo 6/2013 Fred Dellar

 
From: Redecker 2014-03-13 14:17:49

The most revelatory of a three-volume survey of Sun Records (see also Blues Box and Rock Box), this six-CD set comes via Germany's Bear Family, which has arguably done more to preserve country-music history than any U.S. label
Rolling Stone May 8, 2013 Will Hermes

 
From: Redecker 2014-03-13 14:17:35

6 CDs mit revolutionären Country-Aufnahmen, die immer noch erfrischend wirken und die der Sun-Chef Sam Phillips verantwortete, sind nun in einer massiven Box zu genießen.
KulturSpiegel 4/2013 Christoph Dallach

 
From: Redecker 2014-03-13 14:16:46

There's so much stuff to consume in this glorious aural history that it's almost pointless to highlight standouts.
Record Collector 4/2013 Terry Staunton

 
From: Redecker 2014-03-13 14:16:28

It's a stunning set and defintely still a Rolls-Royce!
