Editorial Reviews

(3-CD + booklet) SUN RECORDS earned its widespread fame as the Memphis-based birthplace of rock 'n' roll pioneers like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Billy Riley, as well as icons of American music such as Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and Charlie Rich. SUN was also home to blues legends like Howlin' Wolf, B. B. King, Rufus Thomas, Jr. and Rosco Gordon. Label owner Sam Phillips truly did it all with his little Memphis label, and built a legend in the process. Although SUN is best known for rockers and rockin' music, it turns out that even rockers had their mellow moments. SUN managed to record a surprising number of them and built a very effective library of ballads as well. This side of SUN's legacy has never been examined in depth - until now.

Sun Ballads surveys a 10 year period of SUN's history from the earliest blues and hillbilly days to the Golden Era of rockabilly and beyond, into the early 1960s. This collection combines some of SUN's best known recording pioneers with a few truly obscure artists and rarely reissued titles; it contains a lavishly illustrated book with detailed track by track commentary by SUN historian Hank Davis. This 3-CD set is an unprecedented treasure trove for SUN fans and collectors.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As a collector of all things Sun , this was a must have.....few real big hits here on this 3 disc collection , but a few demos & alt. takes to add to the collection . A nice booklet with some interesting photos , but the 4 section gatefold album is not really up to Bear Family standards & a bit flimsy ! Still nice to have a package that is not a reissue of all Sun's frantic rockers & some of the lesser known artists . This may be only for collectors & while I have most , if not all of Bear Family's Sun output , I highly recommend it . Another recent purchase of Sun material , the Miller Sisters Sun output from 1954 -57 from Charly is another nice set for the avid Sun collector ! Rock on & keep up the good work Bear Family ! NJ.
