Sun Records, also known as "Sun Records," is a renowned US label that was founded in 1952 by Sam Phillips. This influential label played a pivotal role in defining the Rockabilly genre during the 1950s and 1960s, boasting legendary artists such as Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and the iconic Elvis Presley.
With its first record release being "Blues In My Condition" by Little Walter Horton and Jack Kelly, Sun Records quickly gained recognition. Throughout its early years, Phillips recorded several talented artists who went on to achieve great success in their careers. Notable names include B.B. King, Rufus Thomas, and Howlin' Wolf.
In 1953, Sun Records scored its first hit with Rufus Thomas's "Bearcat," which bore similarities to the popular track "Hound Dog." The label continued to make waves when Little Junior's Blue Flames reached #5 with their song "Feelin' Good" later that same year.
