Official Sun Records apparel, every piece sold directly benefits the legendary Tennessee record label. 

This design reads "Sun Records" / "Where Rock n Roll Was Born" and 1952 -- the date of establishment. 

No single place can better claim the birth of Rock n Roll quite like Sun Records, founded in Memphis, Tennessee in 1952.

It started when Sun Studio recorded & released Ike Turner's 1951 hit "Rocket 88", a song that would later be known as the first Rock n Roll song in history. From this song, owner Sam Phillips was able to start Sun Records in 1952.

He quickly discovered & enlisted blues trailblazer Howlin' Wolf, and then captured the rocking new country-influenced sound that would become Rockabilly, signing hot young talent in Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins.

Johnny Cash wandered into the label, hoping to play his own song, "Folsom Prison Blues", an event that would kick off a prolific fifty year career.  

About that time, local boy Elvis Presley walked into the studio, paying to sing a song "for his mother". Months later, Phillips called Elvis for an experimental studio session that wasn't going well until the singer strummed out a rollicking version of an Arthur Crudup blues song. "Shake, Rattle & Roll" kicked off an unprecedented, decades-long international explosion of music that would be broadly known as Rock n Roll.
