Sam Phillips was born this day in 1923.  He was best known for his legendary Sun Records label that he founded in 1952.  Sam had produced such blues acts like B.B. King, Howlin Wolf, Jackie Brenston (with Ike Turner) and many more for other labels up until he opened his own label.  The Memphis Recording Service served as the studio for the projects released on his label.  His biggest discovery at Sun was of course Elvis Presley but close behind were Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison and more.  Although Sam died in 2003, his legacy and music vision continues to live on. Here's my son Connor from our trip to Sun in December 2011.  It still looks the same today as it did back then!
