Various - SUN Records: Sun Gospel (CD)

1-CD with 36-page booklet, 32 tracks. Playing time approx. 80 mns.

Without Sun Records, the face of popular music, indeed popular culture, would be markedly different. Record collectors know Sun Records as the birthplace of rockabilly, and a source of valuable early '50s blues, country and R&B records. But gospel music?

Not surprisingly, no one has singled out this segment of Sun Records for systematic attention until now. Despite the fact that Sun made its home in a hotbed of gospel music activity, relatively little of it was recorded by label-owner Sam Phillips. He had his reasons. Sam Phillips learned early on that it was difficult to promote and sell gospel records unless that was your only business. "It certainly wasn't intentional neglect,"  Sam Phillips explained years later. "But you have to compromise. There's no telling what I could and should have done with gospel music from the Memphis area. I'm ashamed to say I barely touched the surface."

This collection examines, for the first time, just what that 'surface' looks like. Although not very extensive, it has a surprisingly rich texture. Gleaned from a relatively brief period (1950-1962), this is a cross section of the gospel recordings that lie within the Sun tape archives. There is some wonderful music here in a truly dazzling array of styles. The most obvious differences are racial, stemming from a segregated southern society. But race does not tell the whole story.  Men and women, white and black, urban and rural, alone and in groups are all here for a common purpose: to praise the Lord and testify to their faith. And in the process, to see their names on a yellow Sun label. Here, together for the first time, are their stories.

Sun Records editions by Bear Family Records

Sun Records - In the spring of 1952, Sam Phillips risked founding his own record label - Sun Records. He had been an independent producer for several years and recorded the greatest R&B hit of 1951, Jackie Brenston's Rocket 88.

So Sam Phillips knew he had chosen the right job. But would it work with Sun Records, when many independent labels had to close down quickly? It didn't look good at first either. After only two releases on Sun Records there was already a one year break.

But gradually the hits set in: With recordings by Rufus Thomas, the Prisonaires, Junior Parker and of course Elvis Presley. Then there was no stopping. Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich, Roy Orbison, Conway Twitty, Carl Mann, Billy Riley, Warren Smith and many others joined. They have permanently changed the world of pop music.

if you're not doing something different, you're not doing anything
After the sale of the label Sun Records in 1969 there were countless re-releases of the material. But only Bear Family has always moved at a high quality level. Only these new editions of Sun Records are recommended. Because these CDs and CD album box sets deliver the best sound, the best photos, the best accompanying texts and the best presentation!
