CHARLIE RICH - LONELY WEEKENDS - THE SUN YEARS 1958 - 1962

3 Compact disc boxed set, LP-sized. Blue label with geographic distortions, a subdued blue map of the world (with most of Europe and all of Asia conspicuously missing). Phillips International logo on top of the label that reads: Sam C. Phillips International Corp. and is printed between the red-white-blue pennant. The fine print on the bottom of the label restricted its reach to New York, Memphis and Hollywood. The most in-depth look at Charlie Rich's earliest recordings for Sun reveals a startling talent only hinted-at in previous reissues and greatest hits. More than 90 recordings, many of them previously unissued. Some recordings are in stereo for the first time, some are remixed to remove the choral overdubs. CD 1 includes all 31 originally issued Sun/Phillips singles and LP tracks. CD 2 features 29 unissued, fully-realized Phillips recordings, including alternate takes. CD 3 includes 33 rare or previously unissued demo's.
