Boxset Various Artists Sun Rockabilly Meltdown 3CD

Elvis Presley introduced the Rockabilly sound to the world with the seminal recordings he made in 1954 at Sun Records. These were to epitomise the famous Sun sound and set the scene for the Rock'n'Roll explosion that was just around the corner. 

This raw and exciting sound, a remarkable fusion of white country music and black R&B, quickly found an eager audience with the youth of the day. 

Rockabilly has endured the test of time and remains as popular as ever with listeners of all age groups. 

This 3-CD box set comprises 107 rockabilly highlights from the hallowed vaults of Sun Records, acknowledged by fans as being home to the finest rockabilly sides ever recorded. 

As well as featuring Elvis Presley and such household names as Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Charlie Rich and Roy Orbison, the set also includes significant contributions from the label's lesser lights, many of who were unfairly overlooked at the time. 

The set is strikingly-packaged in a compact hard box and includes a 28-page lavishly illustrated colour booklet, with each of its three discs housed in its own slipcase.
