Historians may never agree about where and when rock 'n' roll was born. But all historians do agree that an entrepreneur in the world of music of music named Sam Phillips began a revolution and spawned a legacy when he created Sun Records - the place where Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and so many others got their start.
If the story of Sun Records was merely the story of discovery and emergence of a single performer - Elvis - it would be astonishing enough. But it is not. It defines some of the most appealing roots of American popular taste, and it all happened in Memphis.
The work of many original Sun artists is reprised in this two-hour American Masters film by such performers as Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and LIVE, several accompanied by Elvis' original sidemen, Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. It also includes rare footage of rock's founding fathers and chronicles their impact on modern artists.
This 100% proof, fully charged dive, into the true passion of rock 'n' roll offers us rare moments of pure pleasure.
