Limited triple vinyl LP pressing. Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock ‘n’ Roll was curated by Peter Guralnick (Last Train to Memphis: The Rise of Elvis Presley) and accompanies his landmark Sam Phillips biography of the same title. These tracks are a hand-picked selection of Sam Phillips productions that illustrate Phillips’ unique (sounds and sense) approach to recording and his cosmic genius.
