  • Various - Memphis Belles – The Women of Sun Records 6CD + BOOK (CD)


    Forget all the testosterone swirling around Sun Records. Sure, the label is famous for discovering Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Charlie Rich and Roy Orbison. But there were also female artists at Sun – a fascinating collection of southern women. Most of them were young. Some were teenagers with powerful, grown-up voices. Who were these aspiring singers and what did their music sound like?

    ’Memphis Belles: The Women of Sun Records’ offers an unprecedented look at the women who recorded for Sun Records nearly a half century ago. The box set presents nearly 40 different singers and over 150 tracks – by far the most detailed look at these forgotten women and their music. Sometimes their lives were as poignant as their songs. Some ended tragically. Others found a degree of fame and fortune, if only fleeting, before retiring into obscurity. Sun historian Hank Davis tells the stories of these largely unknown singers from rock ’n’ roll’s early days, and accompanies them with a wealth of photographs, many previously unpublished. Until now, the women of Sun Records have remained a largely overlooked part of the Sun saga. This collection of their music and life stories offers the first real glimpse at an unappreciated side of the legacy of Sun Records.

  • Teen Queens - Eddie My Love (CD)


    One of rock’n’roll’s tragic stories, Rosie and Betty Collins were nationally famous as The Teen Queens during their adolescence, consigned as has-beens before they were 18, and drug casualties before their early 30s.

    In 1955, in their early teens, they recorded one of rock’n’roll’s classic teen ballads – Eddie My Love. The song broke nationally, taking them to No 14 on the Pop chart and No 2 R&B. The Teen Queens toured in The Biggest Rock’N’Roll Show Of 1956 (alongside Frankie Lymon, Bo Diddley, Big Joe Turner, Bill Haley & His Comets, The Drifters and others), selling out at major venues. In July 1956 of that year, Cash Box picked them as Up-And-Coming Female Group” in its DJ Poll, yet by then the hits were already over. Though they recorded some sweet and fine music (the best of it gathered here), they were, sadly, never able to revisit the commercial success of Eddie My Love.”
