    Default Season 263 Sun Record Artists

    This week is inspired by the CMTs new miniseries “Sun Records” that began airing this week. This is not a promotion to the miniseries but rather a promotion of the music.



    It occurred to me that I don’t know enough about the recording artists from Sun Records. That had me feeling that I would like to hear more of the artists of the “Million Dollar Quartet” and the Others that influenced the Sun Sound that has reached across race and infused gospel, blues, hillbilly, country, boogie, and western swing creating a whole new sound. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yobNQbRo6zc.

    Sun Records is an American independent record label founded by Sam Phillips in Memphis Tennessee, 1952. Sun gained the reputation throughout Memphis as a label that treated local artists with respect and honesty. Phillips provided a non-critical, spontaneous environment that invited creativity and vision. (Sounds like the seasons.)

    Sam Phillips discovered Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins. The "Million Dollar Quartet" is a recording of an impromptu jam session involving Presley, Lewis, Perkins, and Cash made on December 4, 1956, at the Sun Record Studios. You can read about the sessions here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Million_Dollar_Quartet

    This weeks challenge is to bring music written or recorded by the “MDQ” or, them as individuals from any time in their carriers. You are also invited and encouraged to cover any of the other artists http://www.sunrecords.com/artists featured in the miniseries, or anyone recorded by Sun Records. Please list in your intro post who the artist is you are covering.

    Song writers may bring songs about the MDQ, Sam Phillips, Sun Records or in the spirit of this weeks theme.

    Wow. When I volunteered to take this week, I had planned on doing the Million Dollar Quartet. I didn't know about the miniseries. It was just one of the themes I had come up with.

    Thats funny. I had an alternate theme in mind that I thought you would come up with. You not knowing about the miniseries and having the same plan is an odd coincidence.

    Thank you linda and Rick!
