Review

Volume two of this series runs the label's output, both A- and B-sides, from {@Sun} 229 ({&"Daydreams Come True"} by {$Maggie Sue Wimberly}) to 278 ({$Tommy Blake's} rockabilly howler {&"Lordy Hoody"}). At our starting point with this box, {$Elvis} had moved on to {@RCA Victor} and worldwide stardom, and the first million-seller for the label -- {$Carl Perkins}' {&"Blue Suede Shoes"} -- was looming on the horizon. By the end of it, we're in the midst of the original rockabilly revolution. This is truly {@Sun}'s golden age. Volume one in the series showed how {@Sun} evolved from a blues label to the first recordings by {$Elvis}, {$Carl Perkins} and {$Johnny Cash}, which firmly moved it into country territory, for this is how all three artists were originally marketed. Disc One picks up the thread nicely with the {$Carl Perkins} spin of {&"Blue Suede Shoes"} and {&"Honey Don't."} Disc two hits paydirt in a big way with {$Johnny Cash}'s {&"I Walk the Line"} and {&"Get Rhythm,"} {$Roy Orbison's} {&"Ooby Dooby,"} {&"Go! Go! Go!,"} {&"Rockhouse,"} and {&"You're My Baby"} (featuring {$Roy} at his rockabilly guitar-picking best), {$Carl Perkins'} {&"Boppin' the Blues,"} {&"Dixie Fried,"} and {&"All Mama's Children,"} {$Billy Riley's} debut disc {&"Trouble Bound"} and {&"Rock With Me Baby,"} and the twin-spin coolness of {$Warren Smith's} {&"Ubangi Stomp"} and {&"Black Jack David,"} two of the best sides ever cut at {~706 Union Avenue}. More {$Johnny Cash} is aboard Disc Three, with {&"Train of Love"} and {&"There You Go,"} and right after that is the debut disc from the Ferriday Fireball himself, {$Jerry Lee Lewis}, with {&"Crazy Arms"} and {&"End of the Road"} both amply demostrating how fully formed his style was when he entered {$Sam's} studio. Right after that is one of the best Sun records <I>ever</I>, {$Billy Riley's} {&"Flying Saucer Rock & Roll,"} featuring {$the Killer} on backup piano and guitarist {$Roland Janes} whipping the tremolo bar on his Strat into a frenzy on the intro. Our final disc keeps the rockin' banner flying high with {$Jerry Lee's} epochal {&"Whole Lot Of Shakin' Going On"} and its flip, {&"It'll Be Me,"} a number taken at a wild-ass breakneck tempo with a piano solo that ranks as one of his best. Special mention should also be made about the massive bound booklet that comes with this four-disc set; it is the epitome of cool, featuring photos that'll make your eyes get as big as 78s, while {$Hank Davis'} notes are as spot on the money as anybody could ask for. Not just throwing together some photos you've seen a zillion times together with a scant recycled text, this book actually <I>enhances</I> the {@Sun Records} experience. ~ Cub Koda, Rovi
