Various Class Of 55: Memphis Rock & Roll Homecoming (1986) LP Re-Issue
Carl Perkins / Jerry Lee Lewis / Roy Orbison / Johnny Cash – Class Of ’55: Memphis Rock & Roll Homecoming (1986) 1LP
In 1986, after almost 30 years on Columbia Records, Country music legend Johnny Cash released his first album on Mercury Records – Class Of ’55, in collaboration with fellow Sun Records alumni Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins.
While the album was in part a tribute to Elvis Presley, it was mainly a commemoration of those young performing hopefuls, the four album participants, who all began their careers with Sun Records in the 1950s, as had Presley. Recorded at Sam Phillips’ Sun Studios and completed at American Sound Studios, the album was originally released on 26 May 1986.
Featuring remastered audio for the very first time, using the original Mercury master tapes, the LP reissue is pressed on 180g vinyl for the highest quality audio fidelity and accompanied by a MP3 download voucher.
