Label: Sun Records

The first record that Sun mastermind Sam Phillips ever released was the good-timing "Boogie in the Park" by one-man-band Joe Hill Louis. The first record released on the Sun label itself was 16-year-old alto saxman Johnny London's intoxicating instrumental "Drivin 'Slow."

A number of cuts on here are on Rhino's "Blue Flames" compilation: "Cotton Crop Blues", "Drivin' Slow" and "Bear Cat", which is good to get because you get "Mystery Train" by Junior Parker, which is not available on eMusic. But there are some other cuts on "Blue Flames" that aren't here, so the CD compilation dovetails fairly nicely with this collection. This is important for the cuts by The Prisonaires and Harmonica Frank. "I've Been Deceived" is the country B-side to Charlie Feathers' hit rocker, "Peepin' Eyes". So where's "Peepin' Eyes"? Also, Dr. Ross' "Boogie Disease" and "Feelin' Good" by Junior Parker are essentially John Lee Hooker songs.
