Sun Studio was born to capture the pure raw energy of Beale Street. Sam Phillips was self-taught - and didn't know the rules. He didn't know not to use so much echo - a 3-piece band sounded like an all-night party! He didn't know not to crank the amp up so high it distorted! He didn't know not to blend the musical styles - or that it wasn't supposed to be sheer passion and fun!
Rock N' Roll was created - with all these wonderful mistakes!
Hear outtakes from sessions, touch Elvis' first microphone, see loads of memorabilia, and re-live the history of the studio that launched the musical careers of Johnny Cash, B.B. King, Charlie Rich, Little Milton, Roy Orbison, Howlin' Wolf, Carl Perkins, Rosco Gordon, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley & many other music legends!
