April 23, 2016 Record of the Day

Frank-BallardSam Phillips, the man who unleashed Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash on an unsuspecting world in the 1950s, was big into 45s but not so much albums. He issued only 8 albums on Sun records’ sister label, Phillips. The last album released on Phillips records was “Rhythm-Blues Party” by Frank Ballard and the Phillips Reynolds Band. An original copy from 1962 is worth up to $2,500.00 today.
