Play

In today’s episode we’ll discover again the universal impact of pure straight roots rock music by listening to the Mystery Trio, a rockabilly gang from Brazil. We’ll hear some shots of Hank III’s “Ghost to a Ghost” album before deep-diving in the 50’s honky-tonk sound of country records produced by Sam Phillips at the Sun Studio. If Sun Records built up its reputation on rock’n’roll and blues, the country records are a less known part of the company that reveal the essence of performers like Charlie Feathers, Johnny Cash or guys like Ernie Chaffin or Mack Self who are being featured in that episode. We’ll also hear pure low down Delta Blues with the raw voice of Johnny Shines with Snooky Pryor’s harp.
