STUDIO SESSION FOR THE MILLER SISTERS
THE MEMPHIS RECORDING SERVICE FOR SUN RECORDS 1955
SUN RECORDING STUDIO
706 UNION AVENUE, MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE
SUN SESSION: FRIDAY JULY 1, 1955
SESSION HOURS: UNKNOWN
PRODUCER AND RECORDING ENGINEER - SAM C. PHILLIPS
This is the first record by The Millers Sisters to appear on the Sun label (their earlier coupling appeared on Flip 504). For a brief moment in Sun history (Sun 229, Sun 230) Sam
Phillips had released back to back records by female artists. Maggie Sue Wimberley followed by the Miller Sisters. You might have thought Sam and Sun were changing direction. But then it was back to reality.
Sun 230 is the first record by the Miller Sisters to
appear on the Sun label. (their earlier coupling appeared on Flip 504). It was a source of continuing frustration and amazement to Sam Phillips that he was unable to produce a hit record by Elsie Jo and Millie. The Millers (sister-in-law, actually,
rather than sisters) had an unerring and intuitive vocal blend that epitomized the best of pure country harmony. Somehow their artistic success was never matched commercially, and by the late 1950s the Miller Sisters were separated by miles and
circumstances, never to record again.

THE SUN SINGLES COLLECTION - VOLUME 2
Billboard incorrectly described ''There's No Right Way To Do Me Wrong''
in January 1956 as an effective weeper, which suggest that they had not even listen to it, or, if that had. they’d listened to the wrong version. Despite its theme, the track moves along at a sprightly pace that belies its subject matter. As he did on
all the girls releases, Phillips coupled a true weeper with some uptempo material and he must have thought very highly of this song because it was one of the very few non Hi-Lo copyrights released by Sun in 1956. The song was originally recorded at half tempo
in December 1953 by Rose Maddox. Although Phillips credits Gabe Tucker and Smokey Stover, Rose's record credits west coast songwriter Ted Meyne.
