In 1952, Sam Phillips founded the legendary Sun Record Company and throughout the '50s changed the course of music with artists like Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley. In 1969, Shelby Singleton, a music executive who ran, with his brother John, a stable of labels in Nashville, took ownership of Sun and the Singleton family continues to guide the legacy of Sun Record Company to this day. To mark the golden anniversary of Sun Record Company's move to Nashville with the Singletons, we're happy to present this RSD3 special collection of iconic tracks from the Sun vault, sized just right for a hit of rock 'n' roll!
