In his modest Sun Records studio in the early 1950s, Sam Phillips took a chance on a diverse roster of artists—including Elvis Presley, Howlin' Wolf, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash—to introduce rock 'n' roll, a completely new sound. Peter Guralnick, author of Last Train to Memphis: The Rise of Elvis Presley, knew and spoke with Phillips over 25 years, and here incorporates wide-ranging interviews with nearly all of Sun's legendary artists, resulting in a portrait of an American visionary. Along with recommend recordings, Guralnick provides a behind-the-scenes look at rock's golden age through dozens of rare black and white photos.
