VA - Sun Records - The Blues Years (1950-1958) 8CD Box Set - 1996, FLAC

This multi-disc set has most of the major blues classics of the late 1940's and 1950's that went on to spawn the rock era; from Ike Turner and Rocket 88 to Howlin' Wolf's best sides. Sam Phillips and Sun Records got every major player south of Chicago to record there sooner or later--and even some who had done work in Chicago came back to do work in the landmark Memphis studio (which is a GREAT tourist destination!). The recordings are primitive by today's standards, even some crackles and pops--never mind the mix (!), but the performances are consistently superb! Awesome singers (including my personal favorite, Howlin' Wolf), awesome harp players, awesome guitarists (even young B.B. King) abound---this is a holy grail of American music classics that lay down the blueprint for the best of rock music's next half century, not to mention the music Elvis heard on the radio before his fateful 1954 visit to Sun studios. This multi-disc collection is the best way I've yet found to enjoy these blues.
