The Sun Blues Box: Sun Record Company Blues, R&B, and Gospel Music in Memphis 1950-1958

This fabulous 10-CD package of classic Sun recordings is essentially a re-release of the vinyl LP collection of the same title issued some 30 years ago. But the new box set has been significantly upgraded with remastered tunes and a bunch of new tracks (there are 306 total), which include Sam Phillips doing a patent-medicine radio commercial, and previously unreleased sides by the Jones Brothers, Walter Bradford, Billy Love, and lots more.

The sonic quality is impressive throughout, and a 186-page hardcover book containing tons of historical photos seals the deal on what has to be one of the finest collections of ’50s-era Memphis blues and roots music available today. —Art Thompson
