For the Ding Dong series, Alain Pourquier made visits to the hallowed Sun vaults in Memphis, Tennessee, where he listened to countless tapes, working his way through 1,228 outtake tape boxes and in the process selecting the best quality masters he could find. After listening to more than 11,000 tracks during February and March of 1983 and identifying a whole stack of unissued sides, he brought the master tapes back to England, where he embarked upon an amazing one-man re-issue program. Not only did he master all the recordings, he designed the sleeve artwork and wrote the sleeve notes. His excellent contacts amongst record collectors around the world enabled him to come up with a whole stack of rare artists' shots to use for the album artworks. The resulting albums, both various artists compilations and solo major artists, have over the years acquired iconic status and are now much sought after by fans of the ground-breaking Sun sound. Now lovingly restored, selected titles are presented in their full original glory for today's vinyl buyers. They are essential purchases not only for Ding Dong's fans seeking replacements for their worn-out original copies, but also for today's younger buyers discovering this exciting music for the first time.

VARIOUS ARTISTS - ROCK, BABY, ROCK IT

Last year Johnny ''Hot Rock'' Carroll split with Decca. Now he's doing his own thing... a little number called ''Rock, Baby, Rock It'' from his new rockin' movie filmed partially in Memphis and Texas. At Forth Worth, Carroll laid down the three cuts featured here for Sam Phillips, he scored as star of this Sun various artists LP. Ironically enough Jimmy's got that Sun Sound and is a welcome addition to the stable of Sun artists.

Warren Smith, a man usually inclined to sing pure country rock-a-billy, gives ''Miss Froggie'' and ''Ive Got Love If You Want It'' a heage of the rock and roll style. ''Mad Man'' and ''Miss Pear'' by Jimmy Wages and ''That's The Way I Love'', ''Rock, Baby, Rock It'' are also songs executed in the eternal evolution of southern rock and roll music. To say the least, what you've got here are the wildest vocals with the craziest beats and an echo chamber leis thick as malasses on cornbread.

Yet, Dick Penner and Edwin Bruce with their ''real cool cats'' stuff will make you ''feel good'' all over, satisfaction guaranteed the boat! Few women sing rock and roll, but all three ''Cats'' are singin' ''bout their chicks, if you dig the message ''Rock, Baby, Rock It!''. All tracks recorded in 1957. Compilation, cover concept annotations, artistic direction and liner notes with session information by Ding Dong.

VARIOUS ARTISTS - I NEED A MAN

You've got your hands on the most stimulating album ever! A genuine Top Ten containing the wildest rock and roll songs from the past year. Since Carl Perkins' doctor prescribed him ''rockin' medicine'', Carl has fled his hillbilly influence and bops his blues with contagious enthusiasm. Applying the same ''rock therapy'' everyone here is having a ball, dancing with a frantic beat to the rhythm and rhyme which will make you feel like rockin' at the top!

Malcolm Yelvington, previously a country singer, has turned wholeheartedly to this typical boppin' Memphis style along with his Star Rhythm Boys. They exercise a solid rhythm in ''Rockin' With My Baby'' and ''Have Myself A Ball''. Warren Smith is newly presented here and sings ''Rock 'N' Roll Ruby'' and ''Ubangi Stomp''. These are happy songs with a perfect toe-tappin' beat and an authentic ''Texas Rockabilly'' blending vocal.

Barbara Pittman, Elvis friend, probably creates the most excitement as she screams and shouts her first number ''I Need A Man''. Ironically she uses the same band that plays ''Rock 'N' Roll Ruby'' for Warren Smith. She's the Queen of the Bop just a rockin' on the table and a rollin' on the floor (as witnessed by Warren).

But the most rollick some guys you'll discover here are without a doubt Sonny Burgess and the Pacers from Arkansas with ''Ain't Got A Thing'', ''Red Headed Woman'' and ''We Wanna Boogie''. Sonny creates the phenomenal climax by using the loudest hiccupin' voice to fling the boppinest words and with the Pacers' crazy boogie beat it's enough to drive all you cool cats wild!

All tracks recorded in 1956. Compilation, annotations, cover concept, artistic, direction, liner notes with session information by Ding Dong.

On this day of January 30, 1957 an explosive rockin' jam session materialized in Memphis, the home of rock and roll for the listening pleasure of all of us. We believe currently the stratosphere is overflowing with the gyratling Memphians and many mysterious spore Cats are ready to infiltrate Earth to Rock and Dance the Be Bop Bip with us!

Well, the news of the saucer been a-flyin' around
I'm the only one to seen it on the ground
First thing I seen when I saw it land
Cats jumped out and they formed a band

Flyin' saucer rock 'n' roll
Flyin' saucer rock 'n' roll
I couldn't understand thing they said
But that crazy beat just-a stopped me dead

Well, the little green men, they were real hep-cats
Rockin' 'n' rollin' to the crazy flats
Brought out a sax and they started to blow
They brought out the drums and they started to roll

Flyin' saucer rock 'n' roll
Flyin' saucer rock 'n' roll
I couldn't understand thing they said
But that crazy beat just-a stopped me dead

Well, I come out-a hidin' and I started to rock
Little green men taught me how to do the bop
They were three-foot high, they hit a few bars
Started rock 'n' roll all the way from Mars

Flyin' saucer rock 'n' roll
Flyin' saucer rock 'n' roll
I couldn't understand thing they said
But that crazy beat just-a stopped me dead

VARIOUS ARTISTS - ALL NIGHT ROCK

Eerie things are happening in this house which serves as the Memphis Recording Service studio! All the Tennessee radio stations repute the house as being haunted by the demons of country boogie and rock and roll. Indeed Sam Phillips, the boss man of this house is brewing in his recording studio the most advanced and dynamic music ever to be heard. Weird concoctions based on hillbilly music and rhythm and blues are creating a sensational swinging, bopping music which is skyrocketing the hit parade charts and is most commonly referred to as Rock-A-Billy.

Unknown bands formed of young whites having been tipped all about the mysterious occurrences are flacking to the rumored haunted house from the vicinities of Memphis and from as far away as Texas. The house is completely swarmed in and out by all these ambitious, enthusiastic cats with their souped up jalopies. Finally they have realized their dreams of performing their favorite kind of music. And as a result the house is resigned to chaos twenty four hours a day.

Each one arriving has his own individual touch, style and talent attributing to this new rhythm, a soppy dancing beat and a cookie style required for your record bops to keep you guys and chicks swingin', rockin'; and dancin' up a storm all night long.

VARIOUS ARTISTS - ROCKABILLY JAMBOREE

Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis are making their first appearance in the latest rock and roll motion picture called Disc Jockey Jamboree. Undoubtedley, rockabilly stands out today, no longer as an extension of rock and roll nor relative to the so-called rock and roll style but as an authentic musical expression of it's own: a southern culture originated primarily from the state of Tennessee. The song ''Glad All Over'' included in this album and performed in the motion picture by ''The Rockin' Guitar Man'' Carl Perkins, is a brilliant demonstration of the entirely of rockabilly in itself.

This Sun various artists package is a perfect reflection of the pure trend of this particular music. The young singers perform frantically, the vocals are growling yet melodious but somehow under control. The guitar solos are aggressive and the rhythmics is percussive.

The unknown guys hereby presented will afford you a pleasant surprize. Among these is Dean Beard with his own compositions of ''Rock Around The Town'' and ''Don't Lie To Me'' which were originally recorded for Sam C. Phillips in Fort Worth, Texas. These works are esteemed superb and explosive!

The some description applies to Hayden Thompson and Sonny Burgess material. Both cats have the capacity to profit standard blues as well as their own songs with a devilish treatment. Sonny excels in executing this with ''So Glad You're Mine'' and ''You're My Sunshine''. ''Fairlane Rock'' and ''Mama, Mama. Mama'' enter perfectly the classification defining rockabilly.

Jerry Lee Lewis who is quickly becoming one of the great stars on Sun Records is not singing his song from the Jamboree movie in this album. But you can hear it soon in his upcoming 10'' LP namely ''The Great Balls Of Fire''. You won't be short changed though as the two cuts Jerry does here are even more rockabilly geared, especially considering the level of the back up where Jimmy Van Eaton on drums and Roland Janes on guitar, unbelievably surpass themselves. Despite this, Jerry's identity is not smothered as his interpretation of ''Deep Elem Blues'' and mainly ''Old Time Religion'' will drive you to the peak of madness. All titles included herein are top notch performances and attribute due honor to the Rockabilly Jamboree sessions.

VARIOUS ARTISTS - ROCKABILLY CRAZE

You wanna whirl, you wanna flip, you wanne blip, blop, bib? Then you, cool daddy-o's smatch up this piece of wax, foss it an your bop machines and work out. Because the Sun label is not only creating but shining gloriously on beyond spanking new-top notch stars!

Billy Riley, Sun's most current and radiant star of 1956 appears here for the first time. Observe the newspaper clipping shown above which was issued in his home town of Jonesboro a few months back. Billy, a promising and talented singer who like other ordent performers attempt to interpret black oriented rock and roll, accidentally contributes to the molding of a rejuvenated music craze: the hillbilly influence especially heard in the vocals and sensed throughout, coupled with the black rock, creates a new sound which could not be more precisely defined than rockabilly.

Generally these songs are brimming with rhythm, with swift acoustic guitar picking, a dominant slap bass, a consistent drumbeat and frequently a superb pumping piano. This combo attributes a backing with a positive dancing beat and if this doesn't move you brothers, than you're a skiff!

The frency and stimulant induced by this fresh sound breaks out in the solos. Customarily it in in good form so whoop and holler as heard in ''Rock With Me Baby'', where the rhythm gradually progresses into total spots, it is the case, particularly on the A sides of this record.

The most restrained vocals became uncontrollable as they succeed the progressive rhythm. Check out ''She's My Baby'' and ''Let's Bop'' and be enlightened. Inserted in this sleeve are the remaining sessions from the ''All Night Rock'' album, highlighting incredible entertainers such as Jack Earls and Ray Harris from Memphis, Gene Simmons from Mississippi, Sonny Burgess from Arkansas, and Warren Smith a Mississippian, who along with Roy Orbison ''The Wink Wild Cat'' came from Texas. You'll receive a special treat listening to these dudes' first sessions with the Sun Recording Company!

VARIOUS ARTISTS - DIXIE BOP

In reference to this package, you could consider rave on cats the cry heard clean thru Dixieland. Even Roy Orbison, Harold Jenkins And Jerry Lee Lewis are new arrivals, it's a cinch these novel and gifted characters after having rocked all their home town joints and school sock hops, are gonna bop Memphis Tennessee and the entire South!

Roy Orbison with his Teen Kings out of Wink, Texas performs here a more boppin' version of his achievement ''Ooby Dooby'' previously cut in Cloves, New Mexico. With Roy's ''Go! Go! Go!'' were hit by a sizzling tension.

From Helena, Arkansas come Harold Jenkins and his Rock Housers. The hiccupping singing and the energetic swingin' sound in ''Give Me Some Love'' are from more than just another Elvis copy-cat!

Jerry Lee Lewis popped out of the blue from Ferriday, Louisiana. This dude's going to be the most humoungous discovery yet: a young infectious pianist-singer with a tempestuous personal touch. So watch out! This cat's ''End Of The Road'' could be the debut of a long career!

Our first-rate Sonny Burgess and the Pacers retain their formidable reputation of being live-wires in ''Mr. Blues'' and ''Little Town Baby''. But the lickety split dancing beat and the booming voice in ''Higher'' soar these wild cats to a new top rating!

The clincher is Carl Perkins, the uncontested number 1 man of the rock and roll rebellion. Proof is audible in ''Perkins Wiggle'', ''All Mama's Children'' and ''Dixie Fried'' songs sure to make waves as they're his finalized evolution into the thorough review-up Rockabilly mold.

VARIOUS ARTISTS - HILLBILLY ROCK

All these cats are from traditional rural backgrounds, and this album marks the incredible changeover of southern hillbilly music in our crazy swingin' time!

Malcolm Yelvington, Ray Harris, Cliff Gleaves lean more toward the rural sound with their whining vocals, shuffle piano rhythm and two-step beat!

Jim Williams, Mack Vickery and Billy Riley manage to sing their rural melodies accompanied by a pulsating rock rhythm. Jerry Lee Lewis on piano and Roland Janes on guitar in Williams' cuts are also all fired up and rollicking with the Perkins band in Riley's ''I Want You Baby''.

The versatile Mack Self is able to execute a tune like ''Goin' Crazy'' in the country style while in ''Vibrate'' he lunges into total deviation from country leaning towards rockabilly. But Warren Smith is the most qualified in this ability to perform not only country but the new style as he does in ''I Like Your Kinda Love''. This ingenious step in music can only be tagged Hillbilly Rock.

VARIOUS ARTISTS - ROCKABILLY FEVER

Rockabilly is growing in popularity all over the States; this exciting and revolutionary beat rolls from success to success. As a result, brand new Cadillacs are hoggin' the parking lot at 706 Union Avenue and a creative fever is stimulating our artists. Compositions and musicians are interchanged during sessions creating total euphoria at the Sun Recording Company.

Jimmy Van Eaton on drums, and Roland Janes on guitar, are two of the most hip musicians here! They always play the boppiest sessions and are the great stylists leading the young hipsters. Check out: ''You Don't Care'' by Narvel Felts (Missourian) and ''Blues, Blues, Blues'' by Hayden Thompson (Mississippian). Jimmy and Roland also play in rockin' country performances; it's the case here in ''Goodbye Marie'' by Malcolm Yelvington, and in Warren Smith's ''So Long I'm Gone'' where Jimmy Van Eaton on drums and Jerry Lee Lewis on piano putout the swinginest feeling.

This LP finds Warren and Carl Perkins already famous throughout Dixieland for introduction rockabilly. ''Red Cadillac And A Black Mustache'' could be chalked up as a country rockaballad on the guitar solo, boosted by tempo beat, reveals the new rockin' sound. Warren Smith's rockin' Diddley beat in ''Uranium Rock'' has zoomed this ditty to the top of the charts!

On the other hand, The Perkins Trio with W.S. Holland on drums, is full of wild sensitivity. Not the unusual bass drum pattern, the penetrating twang of Carl's guitar, the mumbled scat singing on the insistent play in the solos in ''Pink Pedal Pushers'', ''Her Love Rubbed Off'' and ''That's Right''.

Finally with ''Wrong Yo-Yo'' borrowed from the blues repertoire, all the band get wilder on very fast tempo, and when Carl and Clayton plat the ''Right Strings'' in the solos, we get Rockabilly Fever too and we get it bad!

Gettin' hotter with each new hit parade album, every packed house concert, big time showstoppin' radio, TV and movie appearance, Jerry Lee Lewis is the most popular rock and roll performer 'em all, delivering the very pulse-beat of America teen-life! Rockin' and A-Boppin' the eighty eights, jumpin' on the piano to shake that long blon' hair over his eyes, this is the Wild One hitting you like a ton of bricks!

There's no doubt, that Cat's gonna be a Killer because he's unreal! However, this is not to say he's the Devil himself performing! A Devil couldn't get married to a rockin' little angel like Myra! What's sure is, Jerry Lee has really got something special in him! Just look above at this picture and think about it! Get 'em while they're hot!
