Memphis Belles: Women Of Sun Records on CD

Memphis Belles - The Women Of Sun Records. Forget all the testosterone swirling around Sun Records. Sure, the label is famous for discovering Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Charlie Rich and Roy Orbison. But there were also female artists at Sun - a fascinating collection of southern women. Most of them were young. Some were teenagers with powerful, grown-up voices. Who were these aspiring singers and what did their music sound like? 'Memphis Belles: The Women of Sun Records' offers an unprecedented look at the women who recorded for Sun Records more than half a century ago. The box set presents nearly 40 different singers and over 150 tracks - by far the most detailed look at these forgotten women and their music. Sometimes their lives were as poignant as their songs. Some ended tragically. Others found a degree of fame and fortune, if only fleeting, before retiring into obscurity. Sun historian Hank Davis tells the stories of these largely unknown singers from rock 'n' roll's early days, and accompanies them with a wealth of photographs, many previously unpublished. Until now, the women of Sun Records have remained a largely overlooked part of the Sun saga. This collection of their music and life stories offers the first real glimpse at an unappreciated side of the legacy of Sun Records.
