September 02 - The Sun Singles Collection

The Not Now Music record label announced the release of 'Elvis Presley - The Sun Singles Collection' on 180 Gr. yellow colored vinyl. 

Publicity stated: The story of Elvis Presley’s ‘discovery’ has passed into showbiz legend and his recordings at SUN Studios have gone down in history. Between 1953 and 1954 'That’s When Your Heartaches Begin', 'That’s All Right', 'Blue Moon Of Kentucky' and 'Milkcow Blues Boogie' were cut. 

By chance, two covers stood out; Arthur Crudup’s 'That’s All Right' and Bill Monroe’s 'Blue Moon Of Kentucky' which were adapted into high-energy mixes of Blues, Country and Rockabilly. The reactions in the Memphis area was enthusiastic and the Band continued to perform their weekly slot on the Louisiana Hayride Radio Show and bonus tracks from the Hayride Radio Show have been included on this LP. 

Side 1: That’s All Right / Good Rockin’ Tonight / Milkcow Blues Boogie / I’m Left, You’re Right, She’s Gone / Mystery Train / I Love You Because / Just Because.

Side 2: Blue Moon Of Kentucky / I Don’t Care If The Sun Don’t Shine / You’re A Heartbreaker / Baby, Let’s Play House / I Forgot To Remember To Forget / That’s When Your Heartaches Begin / The Truth About Me (Teen Parade Interview).

James at the Grand Ole Opry

It seems James Burton's health has improved even more. He performed with his friend John Oates at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville this Saturday night.
