This boxed set of eight albums contains some of the best music made in Memphis, Tennessee in the 1960s. It represents the very finest issued and unissued music recorded by Sun Records and associated labels during that period. It covers the full range of Memphis music from Rock and Roll and Country to Rhythm and Blues, Soul and Gospel. It also contains recordings made for the Nashville-based Sun International Corporation after 1968.
Following on from SUN BOX 106, The Rockin' Years, this box traces the Sun story through its unfashionable years. Nevertheless — and perhaps to the surprise of many — the quality of the music remains high.
There are 131 recordings in this box. Of these, there are:
33 unissued recordings (never before issued in any form)
10 unissued takes (alternative performances to those previously issued)
5 unissued versions (performances from different sessions to previously issued versions)
5 undubbed or remixed versions (recordings previously issued now presented in a different form)
21 not originally issued (recordings released in the 1970s or '80s but not on the original Sun label)
57 original issues (recordings exactly as issued on the original Sun, P.I., Sun Int., Midnight Sun or Plantation labels)
Comes with a 28 page booklet
