Today marks the day that Sam Phillips sold Sun Records to Shelby Singleton, Jr. from Mercury records in 1969.  At one time, Sun Records was the record label of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Roy Orbison.  Elvis' contract with Sun was sold to RCA for $40,000, so I shutter to think of the final selling price that the entire label fetched, but I can all but guarantee it wasn't enough.  I'm writing about this for 2 reasons ... First, if you're ever in Memphis with some time to kill, go to the Sun Records museum and take the self guided tour.  If you are even  remotely interested in music from the 50's and 60's, you will not be disappointed.  Second, there is a stage show that is touring now and is a staple in Vegas called "The Million Dollar Quartet".  It's a production of the famous night when Elvis, Carl, Jerry Lee, and Johnny met at Sun Records and recorded a jam session...the ONLY time the 4 of them were in a studio together.  The show is absolutely fantastic!  It will definitely be one of your favorites (especially if you see the Vegas show) that you'll talk about for months!  If you get the opportunity to see it, trust me...DON'T pass it up.
