Rockabilly Part 4 – Early Sun Records Influences
Gary: If what I have read is true and ‘Rockabilly is really old Rock and Roll with a Country/Blues influence, when did that start? Well, “The Experts” (who ever they are) seem to feel it was Country in the forties. But if that great explosion at 706 Union Avenue started to happen around 1955, then my assumption would be that the music that Sun was recording a few years before, would have an influence. I found some very rare music, recorded in the early 50’s, at Sun, so you be the Judge.
