Description

Yep Roc to release new career retrospective of 'Sam Phillips - the man who invented Rock 'n' Roll'. This 2CD/3LP collection is curated by Peter Guralnick, companion to Guralnick's "monumental" (Kirkus Reviews), and featuring tracks by Elvis Presley, Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash, B.B. King, Jerry Lee Lewis and many more?. Also includes an exclusive essay by Guralnick.

"Sun Records and Sam Phillips himself created the most crucial, uplifting and powerful records ever made." - Bob Dylan

On October 30, Yep Roc will release 'Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock 'n' Roll,' a companion to Peter Guralnick's forthcoming biography of the same name, and a personal, idiosyncratic survey of one of the most important bodies of work in recording history. The 2CD/3LP set features songs hand-selected by Guralnick, who also wrote an exclusive track-by-track essay for the release. Mostly spanning the years 1950 ? 1961, the set shines a light on Phillips' unique approach to recording, his cosmic genius, and revolutionary role in the evolution of blues, country, r&b, gospel and the birth of rock 'n' roll.

Featuring big hits, near misses, and never-even-close tracks by Elvis Presley, Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash, B.B. King, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, and scores of other singular artists, 'Sam Phillips' delivers, in his own words, "individualism in the extreme."

"Sam believed most of all in perfect imperfection," Guralnick writes, adding "every track on this collection celebrates, whether intentionally or not, the diversity and beauty and rawness, the grandness and intimacy and comic and tragic drama of the human experience."
