Limited edition vinyl from Sun records – two signature tracks from Sonny Burgess “His voice resembles a banshee wail, the sound of a man tormented by a thousand devils…” Adam Komorowski
Some of the wildest records cut on Sam Phillips’ Sun label bear the legend Sonny Burgess. Both sides of his single from 1956 have been described by the Rockabilly Hall of Fame as “among the most raucous, energy-filled recordings released during the first flowering of rock and roll.”
Charly Records, in partnership with Sun Records, are releasing ‘Red Headed Woman’ as a facsimile edition of the original single released in August 1956, replicating the original Sun labels and Sun Records bag on vinyl. Both sides, newly remastered from the original Sun master tapes, have been taken from the 10-inch LP Sonny’s Back In Town – Mojo’s “Reissue Of The Month”.
A true rockabilly trailblazer and one of the last-surviving Sun recording stars whose career continues to this day, Sonny will be playing selected dates in the UK and will be promoting both single and LP.
Each side of every single is curated and sourced from analogue master tapes, rare vinyl and studio acetates and lovingly restored and mastered in London by Alchemy and Soundmastering studios respectively.
