Sun Records

Visited Sun Records.  Not much to to see, but still a good pilgrimage to be in the recording studio where the first rock and roll single (Jackie Brenston and his Delta Cats singing "Rocket 88" in 1951 with song composer Ike Turner on keyboards) was recorded.

This the studio where Johnny Cash recorded "I Walk the Line," and where Howlin' Wolf, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, BB King, Junior Parker, Little Milton, Charlie Rich, and Conway Twitty recorded the songs that put them on the path to fame.
