Not especially engaging. I haven't actually finished the entire book but read the bulk of it as a lead up to visiting Memphis earlier this year.

A detailed and informative account of Sam Philips and the Rise & Fall of Sun Records. The focus is limited to their time at Sun Records, with some discussion of their Sun Records career, and so those seeking a full history of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and others will have to look elsewhere. Many of the artists discussed are unfamiliar to me, but there's enough about them to warrant further exploration.

Nicely done, well documented, a real nice record of the story of Sun. Little interesting stories are scattered throughout, and when you read this you will be amazed at the sheer volume and diversity of the music Sam Phillips put out to create a niche in popular music. I recommend.

Engaging, telling the story of how Sam Phillips' vision and hard work slowly earned him success, each step of the way. Lot's of great stories and not bogged down in statistics or superfluous background information.

THIS IS A GREAT BOOK. LOYS OF INFORMATION ON THAT KIND OF MUSIC AND THE RECORD LABEL THAT HELPED PROMOTE IT. I WILL RECOMEND THID BOOK TO ANY MUSIC LOVER AND/OR FAN OF ROCK AND ROLL, ROCKABILLY, AND BLUES.

The service was great, the book was a great read but more to the point it was a first edition in better condition than stated - can't ask better than that!!
