The third in the MUSIC ROOTS series is this 60 track compilation of original recordings from the Sun Studios in Memphis,Tennessee featuring the who's who of Rockabilly artists from the 50's. The legends of Rockabilly music are all here including Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Warren Smith, Jack Earls, Sleep La Beef, Sonny Burgess, Charlie Rich and many more. 

This is where the roots of rock and roll music were generated and these artists made their debut on the Sun label. Many of these tracks have been covered by other artists since and have become standards in their repertoires.
