 Barnes & Noble.com - Music: Sun Records: 25 More Blues Classics, CD
Because it digs into the second layer of blues recorded at Sun Records, this CD, unlike its predecessor, Sun Records: 25 Blues Classics, doesn't contain the handful of Sun blues recordings that might be familiar to the non-specialist (Junior Parker's "Mystery Train," Rufus Thomas' "Bear Cat," Billy "The Kid" Emerson's "Red Hot").
Still, Sun's blues catalog was deep and worthy enough to make this second dip another good sampling of early electric Memphis blues, almost all of it recorded between 1952 and 1955, ten of those tracks unissued at the time (though a couple more modern-sounding items from 1962 close out the set).
The sound and performances are primal and recorded with effective starkness, and though the variety of approaches isn't huge, it does encompass some ballads, piano blues, and boogies in addition to the more guitar- and harmonica-driven, uptempo sleek raunchy stuff that is the most esteemed section of Sun's blues output.
