Case of the Blues

Today I visited the legendary Sun Studio.  Sun Studio and it's founder Sam Philips are responsible for discovering such talents and boosting the careers of legends such as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, BB King, and Carl Perkins.  It is also credited as the place where the first Rock n Roll song was ever recorded.
It was amazing to be standing in the very room where hits such as 'Great Balls of Fire' and 'Walk The Line' were recorded for the first time.
Roy Orbison
Elvis' original Shure 55 microphone.  In the exact spot where he stood when "That's All Right" was recorded.
"Million Dollar Quartet" -Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash
"That's All Right" The first track Elvis recorded at Sun Studio and that was ever released on radio.
I am loving the vibe of Memphis.  Live music every night!  A post about that coming soon ;)
