Rocker, thanks so much for that post!

The song I heard was 'Good Rockin Tonight', also 'Blue Moon of Kentucky' had some really cool percussion on it.

I've got some good listening to do the rest of today. I actually bought that Cash album With His Hot And Blue Guitar years ago and love it. So I guess I already have foot in the door to this music.

Elvis at Sun is on Apple Music and I'm listening to 'Harbor Lights' right now. Great stuff.

Sam Phillips' Sun records rules, not so much with Shelby making Orion release fake Elvis records.


Well, the Orion thing was really bad imo. Although whoever thinks that this was Elvis probably doesn't deserve better  LOL
But the original, undubbed versions of Jerry Lee are great!

Another one you should check out (and who is heard on the two not-Orion tracks) is Charlie Rich. His recordings for Sun/Phillips International are just fabulous. They are among my favorite Sun related recordings.


But in the end, Sam and his staff cut so much great music. You just can't beat something like this:

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

"Good rockin' tonight", yeah that'S one of my favorites.
But "Harbour lights"? Well, to each his own...  Wink Not necessarily something I listen to many times.

Try to get the Perkins album for a next step  Smiley

I totally forgot about this. Here's a youtube channel dedicated to Sam's recordings:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPXNgOyy_tc5_BVAGbNfrEA


It's part of this fan created website:

Other recommendations for Sun material are the Bear Family releases, especially the boxsets. I don't own any of them but you can listen to some of it online etc. As seems to be the case with nearly everything Bear Family releases, they are top-notch.

https://www.bear-family.com/


In fact they just released two new compilations with Sun material: Guitars at Sun and Drums at Sun

Well, as of yet, the series is not what I had hoped it would be. It's ok for some entertainment if you have nothing else to do. Especially the way some characters (in fact most of them) are portrayed is disappointing. And it seems like none of the actors gets their character. There is no connection between actor and character. Only superficial TV acting (in not such a good sense). Let's wait and see what it will evolve to.


You can watch the two first episodes here:

I haven't watched the latest episode yet, but as of yet I'm not too fond of this series. It just doesn't work. The actors mostly seem like a they don't know a thing about their characters. And I'm thankful for every moment "Elvis" isn't in a scene. That one - more than any other - is an embarrassment imo, followed by "Johnny Cash".
Has anyone else watched this? What are your thoughts?

rab2591, did you find something interesting?





On another note, the legendary James Cotton passed away. He also started out with Sam and Sun Records:

And this one is also new to me:
